We are looking for volunteers to participate in a study on the adoption of Cybersecurity Capability Maturity Models in Municipal Government Critical Infrastructure Protection. This study aims to investigate the impact that a cybersecurity capability maturity model has on improving cybersecurity readiness on cyber-interdependent critical infrastructures.  The study takes place online.

You will be asked to participate in a short electronic survey designed to quantitatively investigate the impact of a capability maturity model (CMM) based on ISO/IEC 27001 and SEI-CMMI and which is tailored to address the unique situation of a municipal government operator of multiple, cyber-interdependent critical infrastructures.

To be eligible, you must have decision-making authority in the cybersecurity domain at a Canadian municipality or municipal critical infrastructure operator (power, water, ICT, emergency services), comfortable using computers to access the Internet and at least 18 years of age.

The study will take place online and should take approximately 10 to 15 minutes to complete.

If you are interested, please complete the online survey or email Walter Miron at for more details on participating.

This research has been reviewed and approved by the Carleton University Research Ethics Board, 613-520-2517 or ethics@carleton.ca.
