As your trusted technology partner, ACE IT Solutions is continually on the lookout for resources we can share with our clients that will help them succeed. This new tool launched by Homeland Security is an essential resource to help SMBs boost their cybersecurity and risk management programs and avoid becoming the next victim of a cybersecurity breach — which could easily sink an underprepared SMB.
In conjunction with Cybersecurity Awareness Month, Homeland Security’s National Cybersecurity Alliance (NCSA) has launched CyberSecure My Business™, a comprehensive national program led by the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA) to help businesses of all sizes learn to be safer and more secure online.
Because today’s cybersecurity threat landscape requires C-level executives to assume ownership of their cybersecurity programs, we encourage all SMB managers to take the time to review the website and register for the NCSA CyberSecure My Business monthly webinar series.
As the cornerstone of the program, NCSA has translated the (NIST) Cybersecurity Framework into simpler language and incorporated it into an introductory-level, in-person, highly interactive workshop. The workshop series – hosted in partnership with the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) and the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), with support from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security – provides guidance on integrating cybersecurity practices, using a simplified version of the NIST Cybersecurity Framework and incorporating content from federal and industry partners, including recent threat data.
Along with live workshops, NCSA has started a webinar series for small and medium-sized businesses in partnership with our public and private partners. These events will be held on the second Tuesday of every month. The next webinar will address “How to Identify Key Assets and Data.”
Through these workshops, NCSA teaches organizations how to think about cybersecurity, leading them through various scenarios and steps they can take to better secure their data.
We believe all SMBs can gain valuable insight from these webinars and we encourage all our clients to attend. Register here to take advantage of these first-Tuesday webinars: https://staysafeonline.org/event_category/cybersecure-my-business/
