2020 Deloitte-NASCIO Cybersecurity Study – States at Risk: The Cybersecurity Imperative in Uncertain Times

The sixth biennial Deloitte-NASCIO Cybersecurity Study reflects insights from all 50 states and 1 territory on the CISO’s role and budget, governance, reporting, workforce and operations. The CISOs filled out this year’s survey in May/June 2020—an unprecedented time as the world adjusted to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. State governments responded by moving their enterprise operations, services and employees to a virtual environment, and the study captures COVID-19’s impact on state cyber posture to the extent visible during the early response to the pandemic.

The 2020 State CIO Survey

2020 is a year that has undoubtedly been defined by the COVID-19 pandemic. In this eleventh annual state chief information officer (CIO) survey, we received the perspective of 47 state and territory CIOs on the extraordinary and unprecedented challenges they faced this year. In addition to directly addressing the issues and lessons learned by CIOs in responding to the pandemic, we also received updates from CIOs on many of the tradi­tional topics covered by the survey, including CIO organization business models, digital government, adoption of cloud and emerging technologies and state and local collaboration. As might be expect­ed, there was not a single topic area where the pandemic did not impact state CIO experiences in some way. The continuing work to address the immediate challenges of COVID-19 and to prepare for the long-term impacts to state and citizen work and personal lives is reflected throughout this year’s survey.

The State CIO Operating Model: Bridging Trends and Action

In this third in our series related to NASCIO’s “The CIO Operating System:  Managing Change in a Sustainable Way,” we explore a maturity model that can help state CIOs develop their organization and explain their leadership role to a broad stakeholder audience.  This paper creates a connection between trends and action and supports NASCIO’s mission to represent state CIOs in the evolving state government market.  The maturity model provides a set of milestones for states to strive toward.  Each maturity level is described using key characteristics.  This not only provides states with a way for assessing their current state but also assists in creating the next set of goals as they move up the maturity curve.  A ratings table is presented that provides a more detailed set of dimensions that characterize the new operating model.  The paper culminates with a short assessment of some the key learnings from a survey of the states that was conducted in the third quarter of 2018.
