Cybersecurity: Protect Your Tribe’s Assets

Monday, April 24, In-person

A panel session at NAFOA’s 41st Annual Conference in Washington, DC

About the panel discussion: When was the last time you had someone try to penetrate your IT network to make sure your network and data is secure? All networks are vulnerable to outside attacks and remote work can increase the risk of cyberattacks. Employees need to be properly trained on identifying phishing and social engineering. Hear about cybersecurity events that have occurred and how tribal governments can ensure their networks and data are secure.

NAFOA was founded over four decades ago as the Native American Finance Officers Association to highlight the role of tribal finance in fostering economic opportunities. Since that time, NAFOA has grown along with tribal economies. We are committed to supporting tribal economies through sound economic and fiscal policy, innovative learning opportunities, convening thought leadership, and developing resources for tribes that strengthen governance and exercise sovereignty.
