Free Lunchtime Training Teaches Local Governments How to Avoid Getting Hacked

IT Mindshare's new training provides free information for local government employees, city managers, and elected officials looking to learn how to make their computer networks less vulnerable to attacks from cyber-criminals.

Morgantown, United States - June 13, 2019 /PressCable/ —

For local government employees, city managers, and elected officials looking to learn more about cybersecurity and how to keep their networks safe from hackers, IT Mindshare is offering a free lunch and training session on Wednesday, June 26 from 12-12:45pm at IT Mindshare’s offices in Morgantown.

For full details, interested parties are encouraged to view the event page at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/what-every-local-government-should-know-about-cyber-security-registration-63318906554 .

Areas of Government Network Security that will be covered include:

Dark Web Scanning – how to keep your business login credentials out of the hands of those who would use them against you.

Phishing and Email Security Training – how to keep your inbox from infecting your entire network.

Cybersecurity – keeping your network safe from malware, viruses, and more.

When asked about the reasoning behind providing this free training on such an in-demand topic, Jeremy Harris, owner of IT Mindshare said:

“If you’ve been keeping up with the news, you know that municipal governments all over the country are being targeted by hackers at an alarming frequency. Just recently the city of Baltimore was brought to a screeching halt TWICE in the span of just over a year by hackers who broke into their systems and held their data for ransom.

The irony is that these cyberattacks could have been easily avoided with some simple precautionary measures. As the region’s top security & IT firm, IT Mindshare is committed to helping our community governments stay safe and secure so that these types of issues don’t happen in our backyard.”

Local government employees, city managers, and elected officials can find the most up-to-date information about the free training at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/what-every-local-government-should-know-about-cyber-security-registration-63318906554.

Limited seating is available, so interested government representatives are encouraged to reserve their seats early. Lunch and refreshments will be provided, and the presenters will be happy to answer any questions during or after the presentation. Representatives who have specific questions about the training itself may contact IT Mindshare via their website or by phone at (304) 658-7600.

HONOLULU — The Latest on a fatal plane crash in Hawaii (all times local): 2 p.m. Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Ian Gregor says he's not immediately able to comment on the National Transportation Safety Board's demand that his agency strengthen skydiving regulations.

Nuevo Laredo says it will receive migrants returned from US

Jun 26, 2019

MEXICO CITY — The border city of Nuevo Laredo is to begin receiving migrants returned from the United States as early as this week to wait in Mexico while their asylum claims wind their way through U.S. courts, Mexican officials said Monday. Mexico and Washington agreed to expand the Migrant Protection Protocols program, also known as "remain in Mexico," during earlier talks that headed off threatened U.S. tariffs on Mexican goods. The expansion is expected to take place at three points along the border, and Nuevo Laredo Mayor Enrique Rivas confirmed that his city across from Laredo, Texas, is one...

European vacation over, Naeher and US bounce back up

Jun 26, 2019

REIMS, France — Alyssa Naeher's European vacation ended quickly Monday night. After three games with little to do, the 31-year-old American goalkeeper blundered in her first World Cup knockout match, playing a short pass to Becky Sauerbrunn that led to Spain's tying goal just 2 minutes, 40 seconds after the United States had taken the lead. "Those moments, they can absolutely destroy your team," American coach Jill Ellis would later say. Naeher rebounded — mentally and physically. Spain treated her like a tackle dummy, but with a couple of spectacular grabs in traffic and punchouts, she kept the score tied....

COLUMBIA, N.H. — A long-planned Blessing of the Bikes ceremony for motorcycle enthusiasts became a grief-filled memorial Sunday as hundreds converged to mourn seven bikers killed in a devastating crash with a pickup truck .

Skydiving plane in Hawaii crash had scary 2016 mishap

Jun 26, 2019

HONOLULU — A skydiving plane that crashed in Hawaii, killing 11 people, was involved in a terrifying midair incident three years ago in Northern California that prompted the 14 skydivers aboard to jump earlier than planned to safety, according to government investigative records. The Beechcraft King Air plane crashed and burned on Oahu island's north shore Friday evening after witnesses said it appeared to turn back shortly after takeoff. In the July 23, 2016, incident near Byron, California, the twin-engine plane stalled three times and spun repeatedly before the pilot at that time managed to land it safely, the National...
