Each year NASCIO honors outstanding IT projects among the states through the NASCIO State IT Recognition Awards. The Awards showcase innovation and excellence in the use of information technology in state government, such as transformational projects and initiatives that address critical business problems, improve business processes and increase citizen engagement in state government.
In 2017, NASCIO's 29th consecutive year of the awards program, volunteer judges selected 11 recipients across 11 categories.
NASCIO conducts a survey of the state CIOs to identify and prioritize the top policy and technology issues facing state government. The CIOs top ten priorities are identified and used as input to NASCIO's programs, planning for conference sessions, and publications.
The National Association of State Chief Information Officers (NASCIO) supports National Cybersecurity

education, and training on a year-round basis.
For the 2016 observance, NASCIO has updated its Resource Guide for State Cybersecurity Awareness, Education, and Training Initiatives. This guide includes:
The Resource Guide is a working document that should prove a valuable resource for Cybersecurity Awareness Month, as well as the ongoing planning of security awareness and training efforts state programs may undertake thereafter.
This study reports findings and analysis of a comprehensive survey of State Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs) conducted by NASCIO in partnership with Deloitte. The results of the 2016 Deloitte-NASCIO Cybersecurity Study confirm the growing importance of cybersecurity for states.
