    Protecting Critical Infrastructure from Cyberattacks

    Free IFME / APWA Hosted Webinar - Register now

    As part of our global efforts to provide the best education and training to public works professionals, IFME and the APWA invite you to our upcoming Click, Listen & Learn webinar, "Protecting Critical Infrastructure from Cyberattacks."

    As a member of the International Federation of Municipal Engineering (IFME), you'll find this topic on cybersecurity to be timely, informative, and relevant to you as a leader in public works. This interactive educational event will feature a panel of experts sharing the latest best practices in strengthening cybersecurity to prevent cyberattacks. Come ready with your questions as we'll conclude the webinar with an open forum.

    Government and public-sector entities are highly attractive targets for cyberattacks because many hold significant volumes of highly coveted data and they're perceived to have virtually unlimited financial resources. These entities are often underinvested in cybersecurity and are struggling to modernize legacy systems and attract and retain talented cyber professionals to their organizations. Public works professionals need to understand the potential threats and how to become resilient to cyberattacks.
