By Michael Richoux, eRiskHub® Account Manager
It is paramount that officials stay informed and prepare before an incident occurs to minimize potential damages and reduce organizational chaos during a crisis.

Most public entity professionals know that their organization’s cybersecurity is crucial, but how does one begin to learn about defending against complex cyber threats like ransomware?

Fortunately, all KACo members have access to a powerful cyber readiness portal called the eRiskHub®, powered by NetDiligence®, which allows members to quickly and easily educate and prepare with cybersecurity best practices.
