State Agencies Get Crash Course in Cyber Defense

August 16th, 2017 by Jake Stofan
The Agency for State Technology and the Florida National Guard are teaming up this week to put the cyber security of state agencies to the test.
IT staff from multiple state agencies are undergoing training exercises using real life scenarios of cyber threats. While one team tries to break into a system, the other side tries to defend against it.
“To take systems with vulnerabilities and to have one side of the group exploiting them and the other side trying to mitigate it, eliminate the vulnerabilities and of course get the bad actors out of their system. So it is modeled after real world scenarios and we’re happy to be able to give them practice without it being real,” said Eric Larson, Executive Director of the Agency for State Technology.
The training continues through Wednesday.
