To help you get started in developing your community’s cybersecurity program, the CIAS-ISAO has four initial, critical steps to guide you. Each step includes specific ways to help you accomplish them.
The CIAS-ISAO was established to help states, local jurisdictions, tribes and territories (SLTTs) to establish comprehensive cybersecurity programs by using the Community Cyber Security Maturity Model (CCSMM). This multi-dimensional model provides a roadmap and common point of reference for organizations looking to create viable and sustainable cybersecurity programs.
The National Centers of Academic Excellence in Cybersecurity, as part of the National Security Agency (NSA), has awarded a grant in the amount of $1.67 million to the CIAS to help communities become more cyber secure nationwide. The CIAS will work with multiple communities during the two-year grant, beginning with Angelo State University and the city of San Angelo.
