State Cybersecurity Governance Case Studies

In recognition of the importance of governance in addressing cyber risks, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) partnered with the National Association of State Chief Information Officers (NASCIO) to develop a report and series of case studies exploring how states govern cybersecurity. The report and case studies explore how Georgia, Michigan, New Jersey, Virginia and Washington use cross-enterprise governance mechanisms (i.e., laws, policies, structures, and processes) across strategy and planning, budget and acquisition, risk identification and mitigation, incident response, information sharing, and workforce and education. The purpose of the report and case studies is to offer concepts and approaches to other states and organizations who face similar challenges. The report summarizes the case studies and identifies common trends in how cybersecurity governance is addressed across the five states, with supporting examples from each state.

Using Data as a Strategic Asset (webinar)

Pew interviewed over 350 state leaders across the U.S. and reviewed relevant laws, documents, and policies in all the states to produce a report detailing five key actions states can take to promote data-driven decision-making:

• Plan ahead by setting up guiding goals and structures.
• Build the state government's capacity to effectively use data.
• Ensure that quality data can be accessed and used by stakeholders.
• Analyze data to create meaningful information.
• Sustain support for continued data efforts.

This webinar provided a fresh understanding of the challenges facing state governments today, as well as insights on how they can capitalize on these key actions to promote data-driven decision-making.

About The Enterprise Architecture Program

The NASCIO Enterprise Architecture program was developed to enable the mission of state and local government. Government must continually reinvent itself to remain relevant by effectively and efficiently providing services to the citizens of this country. The path to this continual transformation must embrace leadership, management, coordination, communication and technology throughout government. Enterprise architecture is the discipline to appropriately define and leverage these capabilities within the complexities of government.

Funding to support the NASCIO EA Program and information sharing initiative is provided by a grant from the U.S. Department of Justice, the Bureau of Justice Assistance, Office of Justice Programs.
