DEVELOPING TRAINING MATERIALS TO SUPPLEMENT THE INDIANA CYBERSECURITY SCORECARD
Cybersecurity is an important aspect of all businesses as well as the public sector. As information technology becomes more interconnected with our everyday lives, it opens more opportunities for network vulnerabilities and therefore more breach opportunities. Previous work within the State of Indiana has produced a cybersecurity scorecard but leaves those using the scorecard with no way to improve their scores. This research is conducted to help Indiana counties improve their cybersecurity practices with a limited budget. As well, this research and implementation guide will be accessible in a way that any employee at the county level, despite their cybersecurity knowledge, will have a solid foundation on where to begin to improve their score. The goal of this study is to develop a framework that identifies the weaknesses in an Indiana county's response to the Cybersecurity Scorecard and provides resources to improve their scores. The framework should identify the specific issues and give definitions or resources for the counties to use to improve their score.
