MS-ISAC Best of the Web Contest

Each year, the MS-ISAC conducts a Best of the Web contest that aims to recognize state and local governments that use their websites to promote cybersecurity. The MS-ISAC reviews cybersecurity websites for all 50 state governments and many local governments, and judges them based upon several criteria including content, usability, accessibility, and appearance. The goal of this contest is to recognize commendable sites and highlight them as best practices for others to consider when developing or redesigning their own sites. One winning website is chosen each year in the "state/territory government" category; one winning website is also chosen in the "local government" category.

The 2018 Best of the Web Contest will run from September 1st through October 31st, and all that is required to participate is submitting your cybersecurity website's URL to contest@cisecurity.org
