The State of Arizona is pleased to announce we have been awarded grant funding for security awareness and anti-phishing training for local and tribal government organizations in Arizona. To provide this training, the State is reaching out to local and tribal government entities that do not currently utilize anti-phishing and security awareness training. Priority will be given to smaller and less resourced organizations in the order of when requests are received.
Anti-phishing training provides employees with examples of how to spot phishing attempts and suspicious emails requesting sensitive information from users or infecting systems with malware. This includes sending emails to employees with fake links, mimicking real phishing attempts from outside threats. Employees who click on simulated links will be prompted to complete security awareness training.
Phishing, and other attacks requiring human interaction, are the most common causes of cybersecurity incidents; therefore, it is crucial for individual users to have the knowledge and resources to avoid falling victim to phishing attempts that can cause catastrophic damage to government entities, communities and citizens.
If your local or tribal government organization is interested in participating, we invite you to complete the following Arizona Local & Tribal Governments Cybersecurity Grant Participation Request Form. Thank you for your attention.
