Inside Cybersecurity

A report developed by the Center for Internet Security and partners presents a “call to action” for state government leaders on strengthening cybersecurity “governance” processes, with a series of recommended steps intended to help officials “maximize investments while securing their state[s].”

The report “presents four action steps and a set of eight tools to guide the decisions states must make and execute to respond to an ever-increasing and evolving threat to state assets and operations. This Call to Action is mindful of previous efforts of states’ cybersecurity initiatives and identifies governance as the missing ingredient.”

Managing Cyber Threats Through Effective Governance” was developed by CIS, the Center for Technology in Government at the University at Albany, State University of New York, the National Governors Association, and the National Conference of State Legislatures.
