Cybersecurity Awareness Training: Important Information for All Utility Personnel

A four-part Webinar Series presented by the APPA Academy and Hometown Connections

Protecting your utility from the damage of cyber crime, sabotage and bad practices depends upon all personnel following the basic principles of cybersecurity. Your operations and IT teams cannot succeed without the support of everyone else on staff.   Security awareness/training has been proven to be one of the most effective "low hanging fruit" means to improving the security of utilities.   This four-part webinar series provides Cybersecurity Awareness Training to every member of the utility staff and has been structured as a series to build upon and reinforce the training concepts. 

All webinars take place from 2 to 3:30 p.m. ET. Each session in the four-part series is available live or for playback on demand.
