The Cyber Risk Manager helps local governments and their risk managers understand their cyber risk landscape and legal liabilities while providing the tools necessary to develop an effective risk management strategy.

We provide a cost effective, user-friendly tool for immediate use by elected officials and local government risk managers, helping prioritize cybersecurity investments and create a detailed action plan to address any potential cyber event.

Our solutions tie your strategic organizational goals to the NIST Cybersecurity Framework and empower you to create a cyber risk management plan that meets Department of Homeland Security guidelines, enables continuous government services, and protects your government’s reputation.

Funding and support provided by the U. S. Department of Homeland Security, National Protection and Programs Directorate, Office of Infrastructure Protection, through the National Infrastructure Protection Program Security & Resilience Challenge which is implemented by The National Institute For Hometown Security (NIHS).

A Guide Created Just for You

A Local Government Executive’s Guide to the NIST Cybersecurity Framework 
An executive approach to cyber risk management

We pushed aside the technical jargon to explain the executive decisions that make the difference between surviving and thriving in the face of rising cyber crime. Get cybersecurity right by understanding the big picture and managing the executive side.

Small Government Budget Sizing Tool

Establishing a cybersecurity budget can be arduous and overwhelming. Our software helps you prioritize your cybersecurity budget based on your government’s risk profile and organizational strategy.

Our budgeting tool is based on the NIST framework, the globally recognized standard for organizations to assess and improve their ability to prevent, detect, and respond to cyber attacks. We streamline the budgeting process, increase visibility into cyber risk, and provide clear metrics. The result is a more efficient cyber budgeting process and a nontechnical guide that will facilitate cybersecurity discussions and understanding amongst government leadership.
