A Local Gov’t How-To: Squeeze Better Security From Your Budget

About this event

Local governments are notoriously under-resourced for security (and the bad guys know it), but there’s help!

In this presentation and discussion, see how to get better security from your budget, and how to get more budget when you need it. Michael Hamilton, former CISO of the City of Seattle, and John Traeger, CIO of Issaquah, WA will talk about their experiences and demonstrate a method for defining and preparing your IT security budget, aligned with results from a risk assessment and resulting corrective action plan. 

They will also show you how to rethink your security priorities to match today’s threat environment and how to explain it to elected leaders, without inadvertently revealing vulnerabilities publicly. 

Attendees will get a budgeting spreadsheet and an editable executive briefing for meetings with Mayors, County Executives, and Councils.
