Acadiana Cybersecurity Community

The recent cybersecurity attacks across the state and country have highlighted that the services of city and local governments, a necessity for the functioning of our society, can come to a halt by a disruption of their IT infrastructure. In October 2019, the Center for Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity hosted the Acadiana Cybersecurity Forum to drive awareness of cyber security threats to our local municipal organizations, to share best practices in cybersecurity to responsible managers at the local public entities, and to connect these cybersecurity managers at local public entities to Federal and State resources.

The event was part of the State’s Cybersecurity Awareness Month, a collaborative effort between government and industry to raise awareness about the importance of cybersecurity and to ensure that all Louisianans have the resources they need to be safer and more secure online.

The feedback from the meeting indicated that the community is looking for more resources, information and events to learn more about cybersecurity. Join our Cyber News Brief mailing list!
