Cross-Jurisdictional Collaboration: Lessons from Current Practice & Upcoming Priorities (webinar)
For the past decade and more, shared services in government have focused on standardizing and consolidating digital networks, data, and applications. This work is shifting control over operations upward from the program or agency level to the agency-wide or jurisdiction-wide level. Progress has often been contentious and difficult, but is now picking up speed. As digital opportunities continue to expand, new cloud-based collaboration will be required across jurisdictional boundaries. Local governments will need to partner with other local governments, state governments with other state governments, and state and local governments with each other and the federal government as well as with private sector providers. This webinar will explore such opportunities, primarily through case studies from Michigan and Ohio. By the end of the session we would like all participants to have a clearer sense of what kinds of cross-boundary collaboration are now under way, what approaches need more attention, and how to get started in the upcoming post-election period.

State Cybersecurity Resource Guide

The National Association of State Chief Information Officers (NASCIO) supports National Cybersecurity
Awareness Month, now in its 13th year. State CIOs and the programs they administer have supported
cybersecurity awareness month from its inception, and states address IT security and privacy awareness,
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:

  • Updated information on state awareness programs, initiatives and best-practice information;
  • Contact information for state chief information security officers (CISOs);
  • Hyperlinks to state security and security awareness pages; and
  • Information describing cybersecurity awareness, training, and education initiatives.

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.

But with that value comes vulnerability. States must consider security, privacy, accessibility and standardization when crafting a roadmap for IoT. This policy brief describes ways that states are currently implementing IoT, possibilities for the coming years, and recommendations on avoiding difficulties along the way.

Advanced Cyber Analytics
This report examines the subject of advanced cyber analytics.  It makes the case for states to invest in such capabilities and maintain ongoing maturity in advanced analytics.  All organizations, including state government must also develop and maintain response capabilities that continuously mature in sophistication in order to keep pace with an ever changing threat landscape. State government remains in a defensive position.  With the advent of multi-vector strategies by cyber criminals, state government now more than ever needs the ability to correlate disparate data sources generated from the myriad of security tools agencies have already invested in.  Examples of advanced analytics tools are provided.  The report includes a call to action list, a checklist, key questions, and recommendations.
