Business Resiliency

This working group focuses on cybersecurity processes, tools, exercises, and best practices in regards to the public sector's business continuity and recovery concerns. For public sector organizations, recovery after a cyber incident doesn't just apply to technologies - it also includes the recovery to business locations, communications, and all business processes.


This group works to recommend and implement methodologies to help state, local, tribal, and territorial governments with metrics and compliance using best practices in the inventory, assessment, and audit of cybersecurity assets. This working group works jointly with DHS, NASCIO, NACo, and GMIS every year to support the Nationwide Cybersecurity Review.

Education and Awareness

Focused on recommending development of new - or identification of existing - cybersecurity education, awareness and training content for states and localities. This includes recommendation of the MS-ISAC programs for National Cyber Security Awareness Month.


Our purpose is to connect districts across the country with a common goal of improving the overall cybersecurity posture of all school districts in the US.
