Cybersecurity is not just about the “big guys” in business.
Small businesses have a lot to lose — i.e., their entire livelihood — when they don’t protect themselves and their data.
Instead of getting scared, there are many ways business owners can get smart instead.
- The Wisconsin Small Business Development Center Network offers a free Small Business, Big Threat interactive assessment and links to resources.
- The Cyber Security Center for Small Business at UW-Whitewater is a new nationwide initiative aimed at tackling the growing risk of cyber-crime in America’s small business ecosystem.
- The Small Business Administration also has a handy guide to review threats and best practices.
- The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), in partnership with the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA), is sharing content tied to the theme of this year’s National Cybersecurity Awareness Month (NCSAM): Own IT. Secure IT. Protect IT.
