Security Newsletter
March 31, 2020
Hello Security Community Members,

I hope you are all staying healthy. As you are all well aware this is a time of great uncertainty, but the companies and individuals within the security community are critical to seeing us all through this.

Prior to this, MassTLC had been working on creating an interactive platform that enables you to post directly on the site via desktop and mobile devices. MassTLC Central also offers email notifications from which you can join a conversation or post a comment . Please sign up here and get started with the security community forum!

Last week we produced a table top event featuring Debby Briggs, CISO, Netscout; Ron Ford, Regional Cybersecurity Advisor, New England, Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA); and Chris Hart, Partner, Co-Chair, Privacy & Data Security Practice, Foley Hoag. Discussion focused on issues surrounding increased risk of security for companies as their workforces have moved almost fully remote. The full recording can be accessed here .

MassTLC will continue to provide support to help you navigate this crisis. We have created a Resources page that includes information on a number of public and private programs from small business loans to legal issues to technology platforms. In particular, please review the updated guidelines developed by CISA on assessing critical infrastructure. Please check back regularly for updates and additions.

Best regards,

Sara Fraim
Sr. Director
