Empower municipalities with cybersecurity risk assessment methodology and resources to enable timely understanding of their risk levels and appropriate mitigation against cyberrisks.

The risk assessment methodology is adapted from NIST Cybersecurity Framework with a Technical Risk Rating component and an Expert Assessment. The daunting resource shortage is addressed by a unique volunteer matching mechanism based on public-private partnerships.

Considerations for managing IoT.png Managing Cybersecurity and Privacy Risk for Smart Public Safety IoT Devices and Systems
This use case provides a notional approach to address cybersecurity and privacy risks related to incorporating IoT in smart public safety applications. This use case posits some of the major activities, key stakeholders, and potential resources for each step of the cybersecurity and privacy risk management process.
Phases-of-risk-image.png Risk Management in a Privacy-Specific Context
This use case describes how the risk management concepts and processes presented in this Guidebook apply in privacy-specific applications. Given the overlapping relationship of cybersecurity and privacy, much of the information in this use case may sound similar to, or even identical to, aspects of cybersecurity risk management. This reinforces the notion that cybersecurity and privacy are closely related and should generally be considered in tandem.
