MISA InfoSec Conference and Trade Show

MISA/ASIM Canada serves as the national advocate for municipalities concerning information and communications technology. It aims to achieve consensus on pertinent issues that matter most to municipalities across Canada. The organization works to craft policy statements that reflect the collective perspectives of its member associations. It actively engages in national committees addressing technology's role in government services. It is the goal to represent member associations in discussions with governmental and international bodies, fostering collaboration among municipalities, and promoting excellence in information and communications technology.

The annual MISA Ontario 2023 InfoSec Conference took place at Deerhurst Resort in the picturesque District Municipality of Muskoka from October 23-25, 2023. As dedicated MISA members, the Edgeworx team looks forward to attending the annual conferences. The Edgeworx team values the opportunity to reconnect with fellow attendees and members of our community who share our commitment to digital transformation and cybersecurity.

Privileged Access Management

The partnership with Senhasegura reflects our dedication to providing top-tier solutions. PAM solutions like Senhasegura have become crucial for municipalities and organizations for several reasons.

Firstly, in the modern digital landscape, cyber threats and security breaches are increasingly sophisticated, making it imperative for municipalities to safeguard sensitive information and critical systems. PAM offers an extra layer of security by managing and monitoring privileged access to sensitive data and systems, reducing the risk of unauthorized access and potential breaches.

Secondly, municipalities often manage a wide array of sensitive data, including citizen information, financial records, and critical infrastructure systems. Implementing a PAM solution ensures that access to these sensitive assets is tightly controlled, minimizing the possibility of data leaks or unauthorized alterations.

Furthermore, compliance with data protection regulations is a significant concern for municipalities. PAM solutions assist in maintaining compliance with various regulatory standards by providing comprehensive access controls, activity monitoring, and audit trails. This ensures that municipalities meet the necessary requirements and standards in handling sensitive data.

The introduction of Senhasegura at the conference underlines our commitment to offering state-of-the-art solutions that address the pressing needs of municipalities. PAM solutions like Senhasegura serve as a fundamental component in enhancing cybersecurity, managing sensitive data, and ensuring regulatory compliance for municipalities in an increasingly digital and interconnected world.

The Edgeworx team is looking forward to the 2024 conference and will be excited to present new and best in breed solutions! In the meantime, if you have any questions or want to connect further, do not hesitate to reach out to one of our Edgeworx reps - we are happy to help!
