What is NCSS CARES?

The NCSS Cybersecurity Assessment and Resiliency Evaluation for Small Business (CARES) was adapted from the cybersecurity framework developed through a partnership between the National Institute for Standards and Technology and the private sector. It is a free assessment methodology for small business.

NCSS recommends small businesses take the survey to determine their cyber risk; sign up for a NCSS membership; and request a remediation plan tailored to their specific industry and risk. With membership, the business will receive daily threat reports, weekly cyber tips and monthly how-to-guides and webinars on how to implement a specific cyber business practice.

The CARES questions were derived from industry feedback and selected based upon NCSS educational tracts. CARES is a survey that translates the framework into a useful action plan – tailored to the specific needs of the small business.

For a complete mapping of the questions to the framework, and other industry standards, see our link below under “How-To”.
