How the Program Works

We invite all NRECA member co-ops to sign up to participate in NRECA's Co-op Cyber Goals Program.

When you sign up, you will receive a unique website link to your own participation tracking site. There you will find a listing of the 10 recommended cybersecurity goals for 2023, along with valuable resource recommendations to support your achievement of each goal. As your co-op completes each goal, you can return to your tracking site and gauge your progress.

When you have completed the set of goals for 2023, you will receive a digital badge that you can use to announce your achievement on your website and social media. You will also receive an award that you can display at your co-op. In addition, all co-ops who complete the 2023 goals will be invited to the 2024 Co-op Cyber Tech conference to be formally acknowledged by NRECA in a special ceremony.
