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.

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.

Biden's prism of loss: A public man, shaped by private grief

Aug 18, 2019

WASHINGTON — On the night before Joe Biden's world collapsed, he sat in a picture-perfect scene with his wife by the fireside in their Delaware living room. Biden, the hotshot senator-elect at just 30, was reflecting on the big things he would do when he got to Washington. It was one week out from Christmas in 1972, and Neilia, also 30, was addressing holiday cards as her husband rambled on. But then she interrupted his musings to share an ill premonition. "What's going to happen, Joey?" she asked her husband, in Biden's later recounting. "Things are too good." One day...

Blooms, beasts affected as Alaska records hottest month

Aug 18, 2019

ANCHORAGE, Alaska — Alaska has been America's canary in the coal mine for climate warming, and the yellow bird is swooning. July was Alaska's warmest month ever, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Sea ice melted. Bering Sea fish swam in above-normal temperatures. So did children in the coastal town of Nome. Wildfire season started early and stayed late. Thousands of walruses thronged to shore. Unusual weather events like this could become more common with climate warming, said Brian Brettschneider, an associate climate researcher at the University of Alaska Fairbanks' International Arctic Research Center. Alaska has seen "multiple...

Signs of recession worry Trump ahead of 2020

Aug 18, 2019

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump is warning of an economic crash if he loses reelection, arguing that even voters who personally dislike him should base their ballots on the nation's strong growth and low unemployment rate. But privately, Trump is growing increasingly worried the economy won't look so good come Election Day. The financial markets signaled the possibility of a U.S. recession this week, sending a jolt of anxiety to investors, companies and consumers. That's on top of concerns over Trump's plans to impose punishing tariffs on goods from China and word from the United Kingdom and Germany that their...

Java still a no-no for Mormons despite fancy coffee names

Aug 18, 2019

SALT LAKE CITY — The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has issued a warning to members that coffee is prohibited no matter how fancy the name, that vaping is banned despite the alluring flavors and that marijuana is outlawed unless prescribed by "competent" doctors. The new guidance in the August issue of a church youth magazine does not include fundamental changes to the religion's strict health code, but the clarifications are significant and seem to reflect growing concern about young Latter-day Saints' adherence to the rules. The article says it aims to clear up issues that could be...

Energized liberals fear Warren, Sanders can't beat Trump

Aug 18, 2019

BERLIN, N.H. — They want fundamental change: single-payer health care, debt-free college, environmental protections and the end of big money in politics. But as liberal voters size up the two leading candidates running on those values — Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren — one question is impossible to avoid: Can either one beat President Donald Trump? Even some of the most passionate liberals are not sure Sanders or Warren is up to the task, knowing that Trump will use anything he can to tear them down: age, gender, personal background and, of course, their progressive plans to transform health care...
