The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and RTI
International are asking IT security managers around the world to
participate in a 15-minute survey. Respondents taking the survey will
help both the public and private sectors identify inadequacies in the
technology-based cybersecurity infrastructure and quantify the economic
benefits of these improvements in these areas. 


Your participation will help ensure that new investments by public
agencies and private sector organizations in the cybersecurity
infrastructure will be targeted at achieving the greatest economic
benefit to organizations such as yours.

participation, you can enter a raffle to win 1 of 10 iPad 2s! We will
