Protecting small businesses during National Cybersecurity Awareness Month
Technology has transformed the way small companies do business, and while this has helped small businesses and entrepreneurs access more customers and new markets in new ways, it’s essential that we talk about the risks associated with moving business online. The rise of new technology can lead to severe security issues, and unfortunately many small businesses are unaware of measures they can take to help ensure the security of their and their customers’ information. That’s why we’re sharing tips and resources for small businesses during October’s National Cybersecurity Awareness Month.
We’ve partnered with the National Cybersecurity Society (NCSS) to help educate small businesses about the importance of cybersecurity and steps to take to help prevent cyber-attacks. This partnership provides our small businesses with access to expertise, tips on how to maintain a safe and secure business and access to discounted products and services. To get started, we encourage you to take the NCSS online survey to evaluate your business’ cybersecurity preparedness.
