LLIS Innovative Practice: Cybersecurity: Developing Secondary Teams to Increase Cyber Response Capabilities [open pdf - 375KB]
This Innovative Practice document discusses the cybersecurity secondary team developed in Rhode Island. The secondary team supplements the State's existing Cyber Disruption Team (CDT) by providing temporary surge support to emergency response and recovery efforts. The team is composed of volunteers with cyber-specific skills and assists emergency managers during incidents with cyber implications. The secondary team is a valuable resource for emergency managers, and Rhode Island's efforts in creating this team to augment its steady-state CDT with a secondary team is an example of how whole community volunteers can provide technical expertise and surge support during cyber incidents.
