Where to Start

key resources for

local jurisdictions

Whether you’re new to supporting cybersecurity in your jurisdiction,  or a seasoned veteran with little resources, here are a few resources to start with:

The Multi-State Information Sharing & Analysis Center, supported by the Department of Homeland Security, offers free membership to organizations with access to a 24/7 Security Operations Center (SOC), vulnerability assessment services, malicious code analysis, and cyber threat information sharing.

Available to MS-ISAC members, Malicious Domain Blocking and Reporting (MDBR) helps prevent your IT systems from connecting to known harmful web domains in an effort to block against malware, ransomware, phishing and other cyber threats.

The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) is the Nation’s risk advisor, working with partners to defend against today’s threats and collaborating to build more secure and resilient infrastructure for the future. CISA seeks to help organizations better manage risk and increase resilience using all available resources.

The Nationwide Cybersecurity Review is a no-cost, anonymous, annual self-assessment designed to measure gaps and capabilities of state, local, tribal and territorial governments’ cybersecurity programs. It is based on the National Institute of Standards and Technology Cybersecurity Framework (NIST CSF), is sponsored by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) & the Multi-State Information Sharing and Analysis Center® (MS-ISAC®).


The purpose of this assessment is to help provide a quick insight into the level of cybersecurity in your organization. The results will help you to identify where to start on your journey to improve your level of cybersecurity. We will connect with you after you have taken the assessment to help match the level of resources with where your organization is along the cyber maturity scale. 

Your responses will not be shared outside our organization.
