Learn how to stay #RedStickReady and protect your data, devices, and information from ever increasing cyberthreats.
Why is Cybersecurity Important?
Cybersecurity is the act of preventing, detecting, and responding to cyber incidents that can wreak havoc on your accounts, systems, information, data, and devices.
The risk for cyberattacks is at an all-time high. Our entire East Baton Rouge Parish community must remain vigilant in how we protect our information and data. The City-Parish Department of Information Services and Mayor’s Office of Homeland Security & Emergency Preparedness are actively working to protect against cyber threats by investing in cybersecurity infrastructure, implementing best practices, and educating our City-Parish employees and Baton Rouge residents on the steps we can take to be cyber smart in all we do.
