Many say the "birth" of the internet occurred in 1969, when the first computer message was sent from the UCLA campus to Stanford University. The world has come a long way since then, and today there are billions of people who have never lived without the internet. Advances in this technology, particularly with the rise of Artificial Intelligence and cloud computing, have transitioned the world into a new era, often referred to as "The Digital Age". 

As we navigate through this modern era here in LA County, we must ask ourselves: what does it mean to work for one of the largest municipalities in the United States during The Digital Age? How is The Digital Age changing the way we conduct our business? In this seminar, our panel of distinguished County stewards with over 60 combined years of experience will discuss a range of topics, through the lens of cybersecurity and privacy. 

We will: 

  • Understand the scope of the County’s digital infrastructure and how it is changing

  • Explore recent cybersecurity and privacy events in our region 

  • Investigate the current cybersecurity threat landscape and how the County protects against threats 

  • Define key cybersecurity and privacy terminology (cybersecurity vs. privacy, incident vs. breach, incident response) 

  • Learn best practices for communicating with your cybersecurity and privacy colleagues 

  • Discuss the benefits and challenges of remote work
