Aegis Corporation is working with the Department of Homeland Security to coordinate Cyber Resilience training for their county clients in Wisconsin. There will be two workshops on this timely topic in February in Wausau and Madison for the Wisconsin County Mutual Insurance Corporation (County Mutual).
"Across every type of organization and government level, cyber security breaches are a very real issue and we are seeing them on the rise," said Aegis Corporation Executive Vice President John Dirkse. "We are excited to partner with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security to offer this important training to County Mutual members. Our counties face exposure to loss arising from data breaches in many ways, from the costs to remediate a claim to the consequential loss to the public served to damage to entity's reputation. These workshops will address these important issues and give counties the tools to be safer."
Aegis Corporation serves at the general administrator for the County Mutual. For these workshops, the County Mutual has partnered with the Department of Homeland Security Office of Cybersecurity & Communication Stakeholder Engagement and Cyber Infrastructure Resilience Division to facilitate a Cyber Resilience Workshop promoting resilience and enhanced security capabilities for governments.
