Yes, even small businesses are at risk of cyber-attacks. In fact, small business is more vulnerable in many ways. This workshop is designed for small business owners (no technology background assumed) who have completed the Cybersecurity Assessment provided by the MI-SBDC (link below) to determine if their company is at risk. The assessment is designed as an interactive learning tool that increases your understanding and preparation for managing your business security risk. It may take 45 to 60 minutes to complete and includes multiple perspectives that can help you understand - and ultimately reduce - your vulnerability as a small business. This timely discussion includes the most common areas for concern and action for small business owners: - Cybersecurity Best Practices - Protecting Your Company Information - What to do if your company has been breached - Password Practices - Physical Security - Buying and Selling Online - Physical Security - Mobile Security Link to the Cybersecurity Assessment:
