Conduit Street Podcast Corner:
MACo’s Summer Conference will feature a live recording of the Conduit Street Podcast, featuring Tanium — the endpoint management and security provider built for the world’s most demanding IT environments.

The rapid shift to telework and growing reliance on digital platforms present new challenges for government IT systems. Cybercriminals are aggressively targeting state and local governments with sophisticated cyberattacks that jeopardize sensitive information, critical infrastructure, public safety, and the delivery of essential services.

At the 2021 MACo Summer Conference, Tanium CIO for SLED (State, Local, Education), Chris Cruz, will join a live recording of the Conduit Street Podcast for a fast-paced, Q&A-style discussion on current threat trends, best practices to maintain proper cyber hygiene for a remote workforce, and new resources for counties to Identify potential threats, contain breaches, and remediate risk within seconds or minutes — not days or weeks.
