The National Association of State Chief Information Officers (NASCIO), which represents the chief information officers (CIOs) of the states, and the Metropolitan Information Exchange (MIX), an association of county and municipal CIOs, have released findings from a pair of surveys of state and local government cybersecurity preparedness. The NASCIO survey was conducted in late 2005 by NASCIO's Information Security Committee, which is led by Denise Moore, CIO of Kansas. A similar survey was conducted concurrently by the leadership of MIX. The minority staff of the U.S. House Committee on Homeland Security will also release a report with recommendations based on the findings of the NASCIO and MIX surveys.
Contrary to what you may have thought, the worker bees of your government, state, local, federal, are on the case.
