Small businesses can no longer afford to remain unaware of cyber threats or remain complacent with inadequate technology. They have to take action to enhance their systems and processes to remain resilient in today’s online economy. 

 The Cybersecurity Initiative will provide a web-based training program that guides businesses through cyber planning practices based upon the 5 central concepts of the NIST Cybersecurity Framework: Identify, Protect, Detect, Respond and Recover. Content will be delivered via a monthly webinar series, blog articles and eCourses. Businesses can also access one-on-one confidential advising from SBDC’s team of business advisors. All program offerings are provided free of cost to New Hampshire small businesses. 

Cyber threats are growing, as are the requests for help from the business community. NH SBDC’s Phase 2 Business Resiliency Survey report (released March 2021) indicates that businesses are growing increasingly more concerned about this topic. 52% of survey respondents said they are very or somewhat concerned about Cybersecurity, up from 40% in June 2020’s Phase 1 report. 

This Cybersecurity Initiative is brought to you by NH SBDC and NH Tech Alliance, with funding from the CARES Act. Data Assured developed by Delaware SBDC.
