Kristin Judge, Director of Government Affairs, National Cyber Security Alliance

Every business, large or small, for-profit, or nonprofit holds data that has value. The best practices for protecting online accounts are the same for any type of organization. This workshop is designed to help all organizations better understand the threats they face and connect them with free resources to improve security. Join NCSA for this interactive workshop to learn how to be more secure online!

During each workshop, an NCSA-trained facilitator takes the attendees through the following steps:

  • Understanding the assets they have that others might want to steal
  • Learning how to protect those assets without having to spend a lot of money or time
  • Detecting when something has gone wrong
  • Knowing how to react quickly and appropriately to make the impact as small as possible and understanding the need to create a plan of action that can be implemented when a breach occurs
  • Learning what resources are needed to recover after a breach

The content is designed to be understandable by people who do not have technical backgrounds. Attendees learn about creating a business inventory list and policy document, the importance of employee training plan and a draft recovery plan. Some of these materials are used during the workshop, and others are reference materials for future use. Attendees leave the workshop with a better understanding of the threats and tools to better secure their company data.

Additional Opportunity

The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) is hosting a roundtable discussion with small business leaders to hear about the challenges you face dealing with cyber threats and data security and which issues you are most interested in getting information about. If your business has 10 employees or less, and you're interested in sharing your experiences with the FTC, please email [email protected].
