LEXINGTON, Ky. (June 20, 2018) — AMR is excited to announce that long-time client-partner, the National Association of State Chief Information Officers, just received the Silver Award in the American Society of Association Executives Power of A program.
The Power of A awards recognize associations that distinguish themselves with innovative, effective and broad-reaching programs and activities that positively impact America and the world. NASCIO’s entry was for their Deloitte-NASCIO Cybersecurity Study, a biennial report begun in 2010 that details how states are managing cyber risks. Throughout the years the study has continued to gain visibility, with this most recent release being cited in the White House’s FY19 Budget Request as the most “comprehensive study of state-level cybersecurity spending.”
As NASCIO’s Executive Director Doug Robinson explained, “One of NASCIO’s goals is to advocate for information technology policy at all levels of government and this study helps us do just that. Cybersecurity is a top priority today and we know that Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs) and state Chief Information Officers (CIOs) use the study to testify in state legislatures, communicate their message to the public at large and educate their state about the importance of cybersecurity.”
“We’re extremely proud of the work that AMR does in support of NASCIO,” stated Nick Ruffin, AMR President and Chief Executive Officer. “They continue to be the voice for state information technology and we are proud of our part in helping NASCIO achieve their vision.”
