The General Services Administration and National Institute of Standards and Technology have partnered to examine the cybersecurity practices of various organizations throughout the U.S. through a nationwide survey.
NIST said Wednesday the survey for senior cybersecurity executives will mostly contain multiple-choice questions and take respondents less than 40 minutes to complete.
Interested agencies and companies may respond to the questionnaire until Feb. 27 via the CyberChain website.
Respondents who complete the survey will receive an invitation to a fall 2017 briefing at the NIST headquarters in Gathersburg, Maryland, to participate in a pre-general release webinar on the survey’s findings and its potential advantages to organizations’ cybersecurity programs.
The survey is part of NIST’s Predictive Analytics Modeling Project that aims to explore tools to measure and assess cybersecurity effectiveness.
The project also seeks to utilize anonymized risk assessments based on the NIST’s Cybersecurity Framework to create a data set that will demonstrate cause and effect relationships between cybersecurity and supply chain capacity and organizational performance outcomes.
