The National Cyber Security Alliance’s (NCSA’s) CyberSecure My Business™ is a national program helping small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) learn to be safer and more secure online.
The program is a series of in-person, highly interactive and easy-to-understand workshops based on the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Cybersecurity Framework to educate the SMB community about:
- Identifying and understanding which business assets (“digital crown jewels”) others want
- Learning how to protect those assets
- Detecting when something has gone wrong
- Responding quickly to minimize impact and implement an action plan
- Learning what resources are needed to recover after a breach
Additional components include: monthly webinars with industry, government and nonprofit cybersecurity experts, online portal of resources to help the SMB community and monthly newsletters summarizing the latest cybersecurity news.
Implement a cybersecurity plan for your business, protect your customers and train your employees to guard against cyber threats.
Awareness of key threats will enable you to employ practices and behaviors that limit your company's risk.
If your business has been victimized by a cyberattack, notify the appropriate authorities, work to recoup your losses and ensure attackers are brought to justice.
The final step of making your business more cybersecure is the recovery efforts that follow response to a cyber incident.
