2012 Deloitte-NASCIO Cybersecurity Study – State Governments at Risk: A Call for Collaboration and Compliance

This study reports findings and analysis of a comprehensive survey of State Chief Information Security Officers conducted by NASCIO in partnership with Deloitte in July and August of 2012. Both a repeat and extension of a Deloitte-NASCIO survey originally conducted in 2010, it documents the relative strengths and weaknesses of the security programs that protect state governments’ vital systems and data. The study identifies areas of concern expressed by state CISOs, and provides a call to action for state CIOs and policy officials on the critical need to support and enhance cybersecurity programs.
