Ensuring Cybersecurity

Cyber attacks are a major concern for public plan sponsors, and as systems continue to increase complexity and dependence of digital systems, the threat will only grow. NAGDCA has developed best practices and information sharing resources along with our partners at MS-ISAC to help plan sponsors understand current threats, and keep their plans secure for the future. MS-ISAC is a leading internet security organization that provides state and local governments with training and resources to help employees better understand cybersecurity and identify threats.
