SANS Webcast Series in cooperation with the Center for Internet Security (CIS) and National Association of Counties (NACo) is proud to present the story of Iowa Counties - Paying IT Forward.

Join us for a session presented by Alan Paller, SANS Director of Research, where he interviews the Iowa Counties Information Technology Team (ICIT). Hear how they established a unique new model for IT and cyber security cooperation. To date this group of dedicated professionals have completed 11 security projects to assist neighboring counties with limited or no IT resources. The ICIT members have all volunteered their time in helping other counties solve particular cyber security challenges. They have established standardized repeatable measurable processes and would like to share these 'best practices ' with other states in an attempt to help county and local government organizations become safer, faster.
