What is the Nationwide Cybersecurity Review?
The Nationwide Cybersecurity Review (NCSR) is a confidential, no-cost annual self-assessment designed to measure gaps and capabilities of state, local, tribal and territorial governments’ (SLTT) cybersecurity programs. It is based on the National Institute of Standards and Technology Cybersecurity Framework and sponsored by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the Multi-State Information Sharing and Analysis Center (MS-ISAC).
The NCSR evaluates cybersecurity maturity nationally while providing actionable feedback and metrics directly to individual SLTT respondents. MS-ISAC has a frequently asked questions page and a one-page overview with helpful information about the NCSR. For additional resources and a deeper dive please go to MS-ISAC's NCSR website.
Reminder: For 2019, Washington state agencies filled out the NCSR in lieu of the annual attestation normally required by the OCS. If you have additional questions, please contact Jennifer Somnis at OCS at (360) 407-8762 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
