Leadership Mentoring Program

The Leadership Mentoring Program is designed to build meaningful and mutually beneficial relationships between cybersecurity professionals to promote the increased maturity of leaders and programs across the SLTT community. The program centers around regular discussions between mentors and mentees, a minimum of 12 conversations over the course of the year. The relationships that are formed will be focused on building professional development in cybersecurity leadership. Mentors will receive guidance and resources from the MS-ISAC to facilitate productive discussions and professional development.

If you're interested in joining the Leadership Mentoring Program, please email the Stakeholder Engagement team at info@msisac.org

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.

Metrics

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.
