Cyber Security Resources for Public Sector Entities
- Provide your employees a primer about cyber security. Download or link this “Getting Started” non-technical guide and make sure your users get it: https://msisac.cisecurity.org/resources/guides/documents/Getting_Started_Print.pdf
- Take another step and give your employees the PowerPoint quiz at this link. Employees can take to test their cyber security knowledge. While it’s targeted to students, it’s also useful for adults and parents can use it with their kids. https://www.staysafeonline.org/stay-safe-online/resources/stc-online-safety-quiz.
- Check out the national home for Cyber Security Month: http://www.staysafeonline.org; it has a lot of useful information about personal and organizational cyber security.
- Have your employees view this video (and other resources) from Franklin Township (Somerset): http://www.franklintwpnj.org/cybersecuirty
- Take formal, public action to recognize the importance of Cyber Security Month. This link is to a template proclamation/resolution you can adapt to your needs: https://msisac.cisecurity.org/resources/toolkit/Oct15/index.cfm#proc. Additional Cyber Security Month resources and information is here: https://msisac.cisecurity.org/resources/toolkit/Oct15/index.cfm. Feel free to post any of this information on your website or Facebook page, if you have one.
- If your agency has its own connection to Internet, whoever manages your technology (employee or contractor) should consider joining the Multi-State Information Sharing and Analysis Center (MS-ISAC). MS-ISAC is a federally funded research center that provides advice and guidance on cyber security risks to state and local government agencies. Details on how to join at no cost are here: http://msisac.cisecurity.org/members/local-government/
