American Rescue Plan

American Rescue Plan Funding Approved by National Association of Counties (NACo) for Cybersecurity Modernization and The Cybersecurity Collaborative

As an endorsed partner of the National Association of Counties (NACo), we are thrilled to announce that NACo has just announced that its interpretation of the American Rescue Plan (ARP) Interim Final Rule includes the use of ARP funds for Cybersecurity Modernization.  Our program at the Cybersecurity Collaborative offers local governments the tools, one-on-one support, and training that directly support cybersecurity modernization efforts and will amplify your success as you build and grow your cybersecurity program. 

The NACo Cybersecurity Collaborative is a private community of cybersecurity and technology leaders supported by a team of experts whose primary goal is to help members be successful in their cybersecurity efforts.  Members save resources and receive decision support through ‘ask-the-expert’ services, access to a library of implementable tools, monthly working groups, 24/7 direct messaging with other members around the nation, and a daily strategic intelligence feed to keep you aware of the latest threats.  Best of all, the community is completely free of vendors, so you can always trust the knowledge and expertise is coming from peers and experts who have your best interest in mind. 

Local governments from California to Florida have taken advantage of our services to compliment the MS-ISAC and receive customized guidance based on their unique needs.  With the ARP funding available for cybersecurity modernization, every state and local government entity can now take advantage of these benefits to improve their resiliency and reduce the stress of feeling alone in the fight against cyber threats. 

Please fill out the form below to be contacted by our state and local government membership specialists who provide you a demo and discuss how we can support your cybersecurity program.  Thank you and we look forward to being your partner in cybersecurity!

Yes - I Want to Use ARP Funding for Cyber Modernization

Cybersecurity Collaborative:  Endorsed by the Nation’s Leading State and Local Government Associations

  “I think the Collaborative is the best source of information and resources I have access to. Plus, as a member, my staff gets access to all the information as well. The 6:30 am feeds are faster than MS-ISAC, US-CERT and routinely more informative. The people you get access to are phenomenal and the leadership academy is great as well.”
-Michael Dent, CISO, Fairfax County, VA
“The membership includes consulting quality tools,policies, and checklists that can help any county scale their security programand is very complimentary to the resources offered by the MS-ISAC.”
-Mike Taylor, CIO, Pitt County N.C.
