ABSTRACT

LLIS Innovative Practice: Cybersecurity: California's Annual Cybersecurity Awareness Event   [open pdf - 260KB]

From the summary: "The 'Lessons Learned Information Sharing (LLIS.gov)' team identifies innovative practices within the whole community and documents these practices for emergency managers to consider for incorporation when developing plans and exercises. This document provides an example of how one state is bringing together whole community partners to address training gaps and improve cybersecurity awareness through an annual event. The LLIS.gov team interviewed the State Chief Information Security Officer of California about their cybersecurity preparedness efforts--specifically their efforts to improve awareness of cybersecurity issues and threats. The State of California participates in the Department of Homeland Security's (DHS) Stop.Think.Connect. Campaign as a member of the DHS Cyber Awareness Coalition and is actively involved in National Cyber Security Awareness Month activities each October. In addition, the State of California also hosts an annual cybersecurity awareness event that brings together whole community partners to provide education and training on cyber issues, threats, and response tactics. The Governor's Office of Emergency Services has served on the event's Advisory Board, reinforcing the connection between cyber preparedness and emergency response."
