Cybersecurity Checklist for the US Government

The US Cyberconsequences Unit (CCU) has recently released a cybersecurity checklist for government agencies. The CCU is funded by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), though it hasn't yet approved the checklist.

The list has 478 questions covering a range of information security issues from the technical to the human. It doesn't just focus narrowly on perimeter security and firewalls.

A link to the checklist can be found on Gideon Rasmussen's US Security Awareness web site.

I highly recommend Rasmussen's sites for information on security awareness and education.
