Review: The GO Committee will review a more than $7 million special appropriation for the TEBS Business Continuity Phase II Project. TEBS has launched a multiphase program to protect County systems against attacks and preserve business operations in case of a cybersecurity event. This Phase II amendment will complete ransomware recovery systems, move data to secure and encrypted environments and reduce operations costs through data management consolidation.
Proposed Closed Session
The GO Committee will hold a proposed closed session to discuss public security and cybersecurity, pursuant to Maryland Code, State Government Article, §3-305(b)(10) and (15), on the grounds that public discussion would constitute a risk to public security, including the development and implementation of emergency plans, and a risk to security assessments and deployments relating to information resources technology.
