Ontario Association of Emergency Managers - Event Information

Event Name:Collaboration: Connecting Emergency Management with Cyber

Session One - Are you Ready for When?
Speaker -
Derek Bowers, Chief Information Technology Officer, Town of Wasaga Beach

Are you Ready for When?

You think you are ready because nothing has gotten through in the past, penetration testing was done with no known vulnerabilities but wait, that was yesterday...
Threat vectors and variables are constantly changing.  All it takes is one small change to the code and it is a new variable.  Like a human virus  (let's take COVID-19 for example) how many variables/variants have there been since this began?  The virus has mutated to different strains and so far we have been lucky and the vaccine currently in place is doing its job.  But how long until it mutates into a strain where we are no longer protected?  We will not see it coming, it will just happen.

Do you know how to "Ride the Storm" and keep your business running and customer service operational?  We will discover if you are ready for Whn and how to get there.
