Held Hostage by Ransomware: One City’s Story

JUNE 10, 2020 @ 9:00 AM (PT) | JUNE 10, 2020 @ 12:00 PM (ET)

In the security community, stories are how we warn, educate and inform one another, if only so others will learn from and avoid the same mistakes. Because ransomware has seen such a resurgence in recent years, almost everyone has a ransomware story to tell, but very few are willing to share details about their trials so that others might be more fortunate.

Join Stephen Schommer from the City of Sammamish, Washington as he recounts past ransomware experiences, and provides insights and advice to better prepare for and navigate this all-too-common cyber security horror story. Attendees can ask questions after the presentation.

Cloud Security for Government: A Conversation with The CyberWire and FireEye


Cloud usage in the public sector has evolved significantly, and so has its security. Still, federal agencies continue to face many new challenges, such as lack of continuous visibility, inability to detect misconfigurations and credential misuse, lack of detection capabilities for cloud-hosted artifacts and confusion around the shared responsibility model.

Join CyberWire and FireEye subject matter experts to discuss how government IT managers can overcome these challenges and pave the way for a successful path forward. Our conversation will cover not only the state of cloud for government use, but also how to:

  • Gain greater visibility across hybrid, public, private, and multi-cloud environments
  • Achieve cloud compliance, enforcement, and control
  • Manage and mitigate risks in the cloud, from a CISO’s perspective
  • Secure the remote workforce
