For local government employees, city managers, and elected officials looking to learn more about cybersecurity and how to keep their networks safe from hackers, IT Mindshare is offering a free lunch and training session on Wednesday, June 26 from 12-12:45pm at IT Mindshare’s offices in Morgantown.

For full details, interested parties are encouraged to view the event page at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/what-every-local-government-should-know-about-cyber-security-registration-63318906554 .

Areas of Government Network Security that will be covered include:

Dark Web Scanning – how to keep your business login credentials out of the hands of those who would use them against you.

Phishing and Email Security Training – how to keep your inbox from infecting your entire network.

Cybersecurity – keeping your network safe from malware, viruses, and more.

When asked about the reasoning behind providing this free training on such an in-demand topic, Jeremy Harris, owner of IT Mindshare said:

“If you’ve been keeping up with the news, you know that municipal governments all over the country are being targeted by hackers at an alarming frequency. Just recently the city of Baltimore was brought to a screeching halt TWICE in the span of just over a year by hackers who broke into their systems and held their data for ransom.

The irony is that these cyberattacks could have been easily avoided with some simple precautionary measures. As the region’s top security & IT firm, IT Mindshare is committed to helping our community governments stay safe and secure so that these types of issues don’t happen in our backyard.”

Lunch and refreshments will be provided, and the presenters will be happy to answer any questions during or after the presentation. Representatives who have specific questions about the training itself may contact IT Mindshare via their website or by phone at (304) 658-7600.
