I am reaching out to ask you to participate in the State of Florida’s 2023 critical infrastructure cybersecurity risk assessment. Conducted by Cyber Florida at the University of South Florida, the online, confidential assessment is provided at no cost to any critical infrastructure entity operating in Florida.
The state created the Florida Center for Cybersecurity (aka Cyber Florida) in 2014 to help Florida become a national leader in cybersecurity through education and workforce development, research, and public engagement. In 2022, the State Legislature tasked Cyber Florida with conducting a statewide critical infrastructure assessment to help protect Florida’s people and property against potential cyber victimization.
I invite you, a provider of critical services to the state’s residents, to contribute to this vital effort. While completing the assessment will take about an hour of your time, there are some valuable and important benefits for your organization.
- A free custom report identifying areas of concern that can assist your organization in applying for federal and state cyber-related grants and obtaining cyber insurance.
- An opportunity to contribute to policy decisions. The data gathered through this effort will help inform the Florida Legislature for future legislation and resource allocation.
- Help meeting regulatory and grant requirements.This assessment complies with many federal and industry assessment standards.
- Professional cyber subscriptions. Courtesy of Idaho National Laboratory, a select number of participants will get free access to the CyberKnights skills alignment program and Cyber-CHAMP resource framework.
I greatly appreciate your organization’s participation in this vital effort and encourage you to access the assessment tool at cybersecureflorida.org. Cyber Florida team members are available to provide technical support and answer any questions that you may have as you complete the assessment. Please feel free to reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
