Continuity Insights Management Conference

In March of 2018, the City of Atlanta, GA was the subject of a ransomware attack. Many city services and programs were affected by the cyberattack, including online services for citizens to pay bills and request utility service. More recently, on August 20, 2019, the Texas Department of Information Resources (DIR) announced that more than 20 state-run services including police departments, had been affected by a ransomware attack.

Ria Aiken was the first ever appointed Director of the Mayor’s Office of Crisis Management and Emergency Preparedness for the City of Atlanta in 2015. In Pathway to Cyber-Resiliency Case Study – City of Atlanta Ransomware Attacks, Aiken will discuss her experience serving in a lead role in the City of Atlanta’s crisis management, response, restoration, and recovery efforts related to the March 2018 ransomware attack. The webinar is scheduled for Tuesday, November 5, 2019 at 12:00 p.m. ET.

Webinar attendees will come away from this discussion with:

  • Lessons learned from the ransomware attacks
  • Key insights on transforming and strengthening cyber-resilience through:
    • Improvements in operational effectiveness
    • Change management
    • and Business continuity

Attendees at his Assurance Software webinar will qualify for one (1) CEAP credit toward DRII certification.
