Technology and Cyber Security Symposium

Sponsored by the Connecticut GMIS
An International Association of Government IT Leaders

You Don't Know What You Don't Know!

How is your organization protecting the Personally Identifiable Information PII, Protected Health Information PHI, Payment Card Information PCI, and Criminal Justice Information CJI? Are your systems protected? Do you have the appropriate levels of security in place? Don’t think you have any of this type of information?

Yes, you do...

Finance Department

  • Personal Identifiable Information PII Name, Address, DOB, SSN, etc.
  • Encryption—Database, Files, Excel
  • PCI—Payment Card Industry (credit card, debit card, and ACH transactions)

Police Department

Criminal Justice Information needs to be protected per federal and state requirements. Police departments collect CJI, PII, PHI, and financial information.

Most Departments

Most of your departments collect some sort of PII, PHI, PCI, CJI, or HIPPA data.

How are you protecting this information?
Afraid of ransomware and cyberattacks?
Are you next?
Do you have the plans and resources in place to handle these threats? Are you aware of the penalties (and risks) of not appropriately protecting this information?
How do you know if your technology staff needs extra help or resources with the evolving issues surrounding security breaches and cybercrimes?
Do you have an Incident Response Plan?
Are You Ready?
