Special Guest – Virtual Town Hall 5/28/2020
Part of staying safe is being informed. Please join Mayor O’Brien, Town Manager Smith, and Chief Ogden during our “Virtual Town Hall” meetings regarding COVID-19, Town updates related to Corona Virus, and Q&As. Special guests and presentations on select dates.
We have a special guest planned for Thursday’s Virtual Town Hall Meeting! We will be joined by Jason Burt, a Cyber Security Advisor with the Department of Homeland Security. He will be speaking to residents about some of the scams surrounding COVID-19 and how to protect yourself from them.
Jason Burt is a Cyber Security Advisor (CSA) with the Department of Homeland Security’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) assigned to Federal Region IV. CISA is the Nation’s risk advisor. The Agency protects the Nation’s critical infrastructure from physical and cyber threats by working with partners to defend against today’s threats and collaborating to build more secure and resilient infrastructure for the future.
CISA established ten regional offices across the country to improve the delivery of the department’s services to critical infrastructure owners and operators and state, local, tribal, and territorial partners (SLTT). CSAs are the front-facing cyber experts supporting regional operations capabilities. Mr. Burt serves as the liaison and focal point for communications, coordination, and outreach. He promotes cyber preparedness and resiliency, incident response, risk mitigation and situational awareness and manages major cyber engagements, championing cyber resilience to public and private sector partners. Region IV encompasses eight states, including Mississippi, Alabama, Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Kentucky.
Mr. Burt has been with the Department for six years. Prior to becoming a CSA, he held positions as a Senior Watch Officer for CISA’s National Cyber Protection System (NCPS) Network Operation Center (NOC), as well as serving as a Network and Systems Administrator for the Department of Veterans Affairs.
Additionally, Mr. Burt is also a Cyber Intelligence Officer in the United States Air Force Reserve. In this role, he provides direct support to multiple Air Force Cyber Protection Teams tasked with defending key Air Force assets and resources against cyber attack.
The Town will hold Virtual Town Hall meetings every Tuesday and Thursday at 2:30pm, beginning on Tuesday, May 12.
