Discussion/Action: Spectrum Technologies Presentation -Cyber Security

 

Bun Tadlock and James Hurst of StrykerCyber and Spectrum Technologies submitted a Custom Proposal, Quote# 006522 Version 1 to the Governing Body. At a basic level the current market risks were discussed and the situation that the Village of Cloudcroft as a Municipality could find itself in. After having done an analysis of the main offices and the Library they presented a plan to assist in minimizing the risk that the village faces and to bring the hardware/endpoints up to specifications that would allow the village to continue to operate with a minimal risk and with hardware/endpoints that are currently being managed and patched by Microsoft Office. Training and Support are part of the proposal that was provided and explanation of this being a phase 1 stage to bring the village in line with a working IT structure, as the majority of the office we are out of date and therefore more open to the risk of attack by outside entities. Discussion ensued with questions and answers between the council and the presenters. Presenters were advised that it would be taken into consideration for the next fiscal year. {Item #7)
