2016 Nationwide Cyber Security Review: Summary Report

This Summary Report describes key findings from the 2016 NCSR.


This 23-page summary report describes key findings from the 2016 National Cyber Security Review (NCSR). The NCSR is an annual survey conducted among U.S. State, Local, Tribal, and Territorial (SLTT) governments to assess their cybersecurity posture.

A “snapshot” within the SLTT community, the 2016 NCSR Summary Report is based on participation from 464 entities:

– 48 states
– 122 local governments (representing 38 states)
– 9 tribal organizations
– 285 state agencies

The 2016 NCSR Summary Report is the first to include a separate peer profile for the tribal community, thanks to their increased participation.

The results of the 2016 NCSR, although a “snapshot” in time, give pause to reflect on the opportunities to improve all public sector security maturities. It reflects the opportunities that states have to help promote local, tribal, and territorial programs. Collaboration between agencies and peer groups will help support improvement of the maturity of all our programs.
