About the Workshop:

The workshop builds upon many state and local government cybersecurity workshops held in 2019, 2020, 2021 & 2022 with the objective of discussing current cybersecurity challenges and associated potential partnering and funding opportunities.

The workshop is part of the George Mason-National Science Foundation Cybersecurity City and County Cross Jurisdictional Collaboration project, having the goal of furthering U.S. city and county cybersecurity efforts by developing foundations and policies that enable and foster city and county cybersecurity partnerships.

The Mason-NSF project has co-hosted 13 successful local government cybersecurity partnership workshops in Virginia and West Virginia between 2017 and 2022.
