Cybersecurity for Municipal Councillors - AMO and TMU Rogers Cybersecure Catalyst Training

Event Date
September 24, 2024 - 12:00 PM (EDT) to 3:00 PM (EDT)

In the face of a rapidly changing landscape and growing municipal cyber-attacks, it is vital that municipal leaders and staff understand their role in ensuring the cyber resilience of their organization, and in leading through a cyber incident. No municipality is too big or small to be targeted and the decisions and actions of people within the organization and across its many stakeholders play a significant role in the likelihood and impact of a successful cyber incident.

AMO and the Toronto Metropolitan University’s (TMU) Rogers Cybersecure Catalyst are partnering to help AMO members and their staff  better understand the cybersecurity landscape and critical decisions related to preventing, preparing for and responding to cyber security incidents. This workshop will provide municipal leaders with knowledge that will help them:

●    Better engage in municipal cybersecurity preparedness and resilience,
●    Improve their own personal cybersecurity, and
●    Define how they can help lead municipal cybersecurity efforts and better help their constituents.


This ½ day session will be delivered by a Rogers Catalyst Senior Cybersecurity Advisor who will guide participants through short lectures, guided discussions and activities that are focused on the following learning objectives:

1.    Appreciate the cyber threats and risks posed to municipal operations, critical infrastructure, and their constituency, e.g., citizen and local major industries – logistics, health, and manufacturing.
2.    Identify common technical and non-technical preventative actions and municipal cyber security best practices; and
3.    Define their role in leading municipal cyber security including during cyber security incidents.


Do not miss this important opportunity to better protect your municipal organization and community from the threat of cyber-attacks.
