Cybersecurity Resources

To help protect your district from a potential shutdown and having to pay enormous amounts of money to get your systems back up and operational, SDIS has teamed up with Eide Bailly to provide no-cost cybersecurity training and resources to members. The goal of this partnership is to help educate SDIS members on the principles and practices of cybersecurity and risk mitigation. All SDIS members are provided with access to a cybersecurity guidebook, cybersecurity virtual webinars on varying cybersecurity topics and best practices, training sessions on cyber-related topics and access to cybersecurity resources.

Webinars
These webinars will focus on cybersecurity and best practices for mitigating cyber risk. Eide Bailly conducted the first session at the SDAO Annual Conference in February where they introduced the cybersecurity guidebook.  The next series of webinars are listed below along with their registration links. The best part about these webinars is they will be live and allow for attendees to ask questions of the Eide Bailly team.
