State of Wyoming Cybersecurity

The Chief Security Officer (CSO) aims to enhance statewide security and develop a cyber ready workforce.

State of Wyoming agencies rely heavily on information technology to run their daily operations and deliver their services to the citizens of Wyoming. With the increasing dependency on IT, the growing complexity of state government's IT infrastructure, and the constantly changing information security threat and risk environment, information security has become a mission-critical function.

This function must be managed and governed to reduce the risks to state government operations and to ensure the State’s ability to do business and serve the public.

The CSO has partnered with KnowBe4 to provide State employees Security Awareness Training. This training will help employees to manage the IT security problems of social engineering, spear-phishing and ransomware attacks.

October is Cybersecurity Awareness Month!

National Cybersecurity Awareness Month was launched by the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA) and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) in October 2003 as a broad effort to help all Americans stay safer and more secure online. The name has changed to just ‘Cybersecurity Awareness Month’ but the message is still the same.

This October will bring focus to cyber security once again with a bevy of information, webinars, virtual events, and more! Keep your eyes peeled for information coming out each week to stay more secure and safer in these times.

Coinciding with Cybersecurity Awareness Month, The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) announced that it will host its fourth annual National Cybersecurity Summit this October. The 2021 summit will be held virtually as a series of webinars each Wednesday in October, beginning October 6 and ending October 27. Registration is required but there is no cost to attend. Last year’s event, which was also hosted virtually, had more than 15,000 attendees from around the world join the event.

“We look forward to hosting the National Cybersecurity Summit for the fourth year, bringing together government, private sector, and international partners to raise the bar on our collective cyber defense,” said CISA Director Jen Easterly. “The digital threats we face today are more complex than ever; the Cybersecurity Summit provides a vital opportunity to collaborate on approaches to more effectively combat these threats.”

This virtual event will bring critical infrastructure stakeholders together in a forum for meaningful conversations and collaboration on cybersecurity, with presentations focused on vulnerability management, partnerships, cyber workforce development, and the convergence of security domains and cyber-physical risk management efforts.

Each week will feature presentations and sessions on a different theme. This year’s themes are:

Oct. 6: Assembly Required: The Pieces of the Vulnerability Management Ecosystem

Oct. 13: Collaborating for the Collective Defense

Oct. 20: Team Awesome: The Cyber Workforce

Oct. 27: The Cyber/Physical Convergence

Registration for the summit is available. This event is open to all whom are interested.
