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:
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.

For the 2013 observance of National Cyber Security Awareness Month, NASCIO has updated its Resource Guide for State Cybersecurity Awareness, Education, and Training Initiatives. The guide includes new information from our state members, who provided examples of state awareness programs and initiatives. This is an additional resource of best-practice information, together with an interactive state map to allow users to drilldown to the actual resources that states have developed or are using to promote cyber awareness. It includes contact information for the CISO, hyperlinks to state security and security awareness pages, and information describing cybersecurity awareness, training, and education initiatives.
The Resource Guide is a work-in-progress that should provide a valuable reference resource for Cyber Security Awareness Month, as well as the ongoing planning of security awareness and training efforts state programs may undertake thereafter.
