Who ya gonna call? Cyber Response

Hacker-1944688__340

If you are a local government entity and you experience a cyber incident or threat, who ya gonna call? At the recent WiscNet Connections conference, I learned that there is something called the Cyber Response Team Program (CRT) that can assist your organization. They are described as the "volunteer fire department" of cyber security. It is funded through a grant provided by the Department of Homeland Security. According to the web page, there are currently three teams covering the state. This post in the DET Newsletter explains that the team assists with: prevention, protection, mitigation, response and recovery. 

Of course, if you are an SCLS Technology Services library, your first action when you experience a cyber incident or threat would be to call the Help Desk.
