The Massachusetts Municipal Cybersecurity Summit, designed to help municipal leaders, first responders, utility providers and IT personnel improve cybersecurity programs in their city or town, will be held on Oct. 6 as part of Massachusetts Cybersecurity Month.

The free, virtual event will feature cybersecurity experts from state and federal organizations and the private sector providing a better understanding of current cybersecurity issues and practical ideas for improving cybersecurity.

The summit will highlight the evolving federal policy and available security resources to support local initiatives, including the State and Local Cybersecurity Improvement Act grant program. It will also feature keynotes from state and federal officials, and sessions to learn about the latest threats and modern security concepts, including “zero-trust architecture.”

The event will also provide opportunities for collaboration and information about resources and programs to help municipalities enhance their cyber-culture, protect against cyberattacks, and improve their cybersecurity resiliency.

Created by the MassCyberCenter at the Mass Tech Collaborative, the event will be held on EventMobi, a dynamic virtual event platform that will provide opportunities for attendees to engage directly with each other and network throughout the event.
