Now Available: Small and Midsize Business Cybersecurity Survey


An industry-government partnership is conducting a survey on cybersecurity issues in the small and midsized business (SMB) community and would most welcome your organization’s participation.

The survey 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) is conducting this research to inform development of cybersecurity 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.
