The Cyber Incident Resource Guide for Governors provides information for governors and their staff on how to request federal support during or following a cyber incident. This includes information to help states respond effectively to a cyber incident and guidance to support recovery efforts. For states with mature cyber programs, this Guide can validate and integrate with existing plans. The scope of this document includes cyber incident response; however, appropriate cyber risk management practices can lessen the likelihood or impact of an incident. Refer to Appendix B – Cyber Resilience Resources for information on cyber resilience and related cyber risk management resources. This Guide does not replace a state’s cyber incident response plan.
