Brief, practical references intended for smaller entities that may not have the technology or information security expertise of other entities and therefore need a basic "how to get started" resource. The Guides provide a general overview of issues, and is particularly helpful for increasing the information security awareness level of those local government staff in non-technical positions (such as elected officials and administrators).
The Cybersecurity: Getting Started Guide is supplemented by a series of appendices which cover specific topics in more depth.
