Session 1 - Panel: Establishing the Cybersecurity Function in Local Government: Challenges & Opportunities
A municipal leadership role in cybersecurity is a relatively new development in local government. But the stakes are high, and in preventing the loss or theft of municipal information assets, the role has both opportunities and challenges ahead, and our panel representing City of North Vancouver and City of Burnaby have many examples to share.

Session 2 - Panel: Cyber Insurance for Local Governments
The Cyber Insurance market has gone through ups and downs as the spectre of ransomware emerged, and then spread into a contagion. The qualifying bar has risen, the coverage has shrunk. For local governments, the situation is even more complex as budgets and resources are constrained and qualifying for insurance has become more difficult than ever.
