Cyber Resources for Local and Tribal Governments

The State of Arizona has been awarded grant funding to provide cyber resources to local and tribal government entities in Arizona. Available resources currently include: 

  • Anti-Phishing / Security Awareness Training (SAT)
  • Advanced Endpoint Protection (AEP)
  • Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA)
  • Web Application Firewall (WAF)

To provide these resources, the State is reaching out to local and tribal government entities that do not currently utilize one or more of the resources listed above. Priority will be given to smaller and less-resourced organizations in the order of when requests are received.

Grant Program Volunteering

The ongoing successful administration of the program is dependent upon the generous support of volunteers from government agencies. Those who are willing to give time in support of the program are strongly encouraged to complete the Volunteer Form. If you have been or are currently a liaison and wish to continue serving in this capacity, please complete the volunteer form once again for our records.

Volunteer responsibilities include communicating with assigned organizations, assisting them with product implementation, and helping answer questions. The estimated time commitment per volunteer/agency is 2-8 hours (for initial implementation of a product). After initial implementation, there should be minimal impact to the volunteer’s time for the grant year - A small commitment yielding great benefits.
