The Texas Engineering Extension Service (TEEX), a member of the National Domestic Preparedness Consortium (NDPC), will be instructing the two day course, "The EOCs Role in Community Cyber Security" (MGT-384).
COST: None, but please preregister as seating is limited.
The EOC’s Role in Community Cyber Security course is designed to teach Emergency Operations Center (EOC) personnel the basic principles and terminology of cyber. This course will assist participants to recognize how cyber incidents can impact business operations of a community including the impact, the effectiveness and response capabilities of first responders. Participants will examine response capabilities within the community and identify roles needed to respond.
This 2-day, non-technical course is designed to provide an approach of how cyber events can impact a community, an EOC, and our daily lives. In this course, participants will discover the roles and responsibilities needed to detect, prevent, and respond to a cyber-security incident. Using past cyber events, participants will explore how the EOC and community would plan for and manage information and resources needed for a cyber-event and understand how cyber can be used to affect, disrupt, and/or complicate emergency responses.
The target audience is personnel involved with critical infrastructure, emergency operations, and incident response in public or private organizations, including state, county, and municipal officials; members of industry affiliations and chambers of commerce.
