County Takes Steps To Tighten ‘Cybersecurity’

August 24th, 2021

Potter County Commissioners Nancy Grupp, Barry Hayman and Paul Heimel have launched a county employees’ training initiative on “cybersecurity.” Bill Solomon and Dan Baker from the county’s Information Technology Department were charged with implementing the plan in conjunction with the County Commissioners Assn. of Pa. The county has also taken multiple steps to enhance the security of its technological resources.

“We have been advised of an increase in cybersecurity risks as malicious actors — both domestic and abroad — seek to exploit local governments’ vulnerability,” the commissioners said in a communication to employees. “Given the sensitive and confidential nature of many aspects of county business and the potential for malware, identity theft and/or other intrusions, the county’s IT Department has been working with consultants to assess our technology infrastructure and address any vulnerabilities.”

Employees will be able to access a fully automated selection of online instructional courses beginning in early September.
