The General Services Administration and National Institute of Standards and TechnologyÂ have partnered toÂ examine theÂ cybersecurity practices of various organizations throughout the U.S. through a nationwide survey.
NIST said WednesdayÂ theÂ survey for senior cybersecurity executives willÂ mostly contain multiple-choice questions andÂ take respondents less than 40 minutes to complete.
Interested agencies and companiesÂ may respond to the questionnaireÂ until Feb. 27 via the CyberChainÂ 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 advantagesÂ to organizations’ cybersecurity programs.
The survey is part of NIST’s Predictive Analytics Modeling ProjectÂ that aimsÂ to exploreÂ 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.
