Cybersecurity Surveys


This page hosts several surveys relevant to cybersecurity in California. In general, participation is voluntary. However, select surveys may be requirements for grant program subrecipients.

State and Local Cybersecurity Grant Program (SLCGP) Required Surveys

Please complete only ONE survey/questionnaire for each organization/agency applying for a grant. Duplicates may be ignored. Please coordinate within your organization to ensure the appropriate cybersecurity leaders and subject matter experts weigh in on these surveys, but they can be submitted by your primary grant applicant point of contact.

For more information on the SLCGP, see the Cal OES Grants Management SLCGP page


The Nationwide Cybersecurity Review (NCSR) is generally voluntary but is also a requirement of certain federal grant programs. The NCSR is a free, anonymous, annual self-assessment designed to measure gaps and capabilities of a SLT’s cybersecurity programs. It is based on the National Institute of Standards and Technology Cybersecurity Framework and is sponsored by DHS and the MS-ISAC.

SLCGP entities and their subrecipients should complete the NCSR, administered by the MS-ISAC, during the first year of the award/subaward period of performance and annually.
