Cyber Road Show

Purpose

To provide an entry-level opportunity for Faith-Based Organizations (FBOs) to gain a greater level of understanding relating to both general cyber security terms and threats and a specific cybersecurity threat, Business Email Compromise (BEC,) and best practices.

Scope

FB-ISAO will lead the development and conduct of a series of cybersecurity-focused discussion-based exercises (seminars). These exercises are anticipated to begin around September 2021 and to be conducted within the United States, in-person and/or virtually, and to be up to four-hours each. Exercise participants are expected to include individuals with some level of network or cybersecurity responsibility at their Faith-Based Organization, FB-ISAO, as well as other public and private sector partners and subject matter experts, as may be appropriate.

Who Should Attend

The exercise is open to all faith-based organizations (FBOs), charities and non-profits. Specifically, we would welcome participation by person(s) with an eye for / on cybersecurity preparedness. We also recognize that many faith-based organizations have not established that specific role as of yet. In that in case, any member of a security team would be a great participant in this exercise.

To participate in the Cyber Road Show, you must opt-in as a member of the Faith-Based Information Sharing and Analysis Organization. Our basic level of membership is at no-cost.

If you are already a member of FB-ISAO, please let us know that you are interested in participating in the Cyber Road Show here.
