Our world is increasingly becoming a digital society, and Baton Rouge is no different. But as technology further becomes part of our daily lives, hackers and bad actors are constantly working to steal our data and information, assume our personal identities, and wreak havoc on our community. As part of our recognition of Cybersecurity Awareness Month, held annually in October, the City-Parish is hosting a virtual cybersecurity workshop, called “A Safe and Secure Digital Baton Rouge,” at 6 p.m. on Oct. 25.
The virtual workshop is free and open to the public, but registration is required. To register, click here. For more information, view the workshop agenda below.
