Cybersecurity Awareness Training Series

The four Homeland Security Advisory Councils of Massachusetts – Western, Central, Southeast and Northeast – have developed a Cybersecurity Awareness Training Series for Municipal Officials. The series launched during October 2020, which was both the Massachusetts and National Cybersecurity Awareness Month.

The training series consist of six online learning modules (see below) built on the Department of Homeland Security, Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency’s (DHS/CISA) Cyber Essentials Toolkit. Additionally, two webinars were held in which participants gained a deeper understanding of essentials steps from cybersecurity advisors.

The online learning modules lead municipal officials through a holistic approach to create a cyber secure environment. Each module focuses on a specific area, Yourself, Your Staff, Your Systems, Your Surroundings, Your Data, and Your Actions Under Stress, which together help you to build a culture of cyber readiness. The modules are self paced and are each approximately 10 minutes in length and are available to access anytime.

The webinars were held on October 19 and 27, 2020. They were recorded and you can watch them below.
