Course 5: Cybersecurity, Kelley Misata
Looking at your business through the lens of cyber and information security can immediately feel overwhelming, confusing, and often too technical to figure out where to start. The Cybersecurity Workshop is a four-part series designed specifically for small businesses to begin improving cybersecurity using national standards (NIST Cybersecurity Framework) re-purposed in everyday language. With a hands-on approach to assessing where your business measures against cybersecurity best practices, we will explore practical cybersecurity risks and provide practical ways to integrate cybersecurity as a part of business operations.
