Deadline Extension: Small and Midsize Business Cybersecurity Survey

There is still time to complete the small and midsized business (SMB) community survey that focuses on companies’ awareness and use of the Cybersecurity Framework (Framework), which was led by the National Institute of Standards and Technology.

The Information Technology Sector Coordinating Council and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) welcomes your organization’s participation as the survey feedback will inform development of cybersecurity resources and information to support SMBs.

The voluntary survey addresses companies’ familiarity with the Framework, their perceptions regarding potential barriers to using the Framework, their concerns related to cybersecurity, as well as how those concerns rank relative to other business priorities. It also seeks companies’ suggestions for strengthening the overall cybersecurity posture of SMBs.

The survey data will be collected and anonymized by ACT: The App Association. No confidential or identifiable data will be published or shared with DHS in any capacity. The survey is open for the entire SMB community to participate.
