In recognition of the importance of governance in addressing cyber risks, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Office of Cybersecurity and Communications (CS&C) and the National Association of State Chief Information Officers (NASCIO) partnered to develop a State Cybersecurity Governance Report and series of State Cybersecurity Governance Case Studies exploring how states govern cybersecurity. The Homeland Security Systems Engineering and Development Institute (HSSEDI), a DHS owned Federally Funded Research and Development Center (FFRDC), developed the case studies. The report and case studies identify how states have used laws, policies, structures, and processes to help better govern cybersecurity as an enterprise-wide strategic issue across state governments and other public and private sector stakeholders. The report and case studies explore cross-enterprise governance mechanisms used by states across a range of common cybersecurity areas, and offer insight on trends and concepts useful to other states and organizations that face similar challenges.
