Exciting NEWS from NIST! The Small Business Cybersecurity Corner Website is now live!
After the signing of The NIST Small Business Cybersecurity Act in August of 2018, NIST got to work on the development of the Small Business Cybersecurity Corner to disseminate consistent, clear, concise, and actionable cybersecurity resources to small businesses. NIST Director, Dr. Walt Copan, just announced at RSA that our website has gone live!
The vast majority of small businesses rely on IT to run their businesses and to store, process, and transmit information. Protecting this information from unauthorized disclosure, modification, use, or deletion is essential for those companies and their customers. With limited resources and budgets, small businesses need cybersecurity guidance, solutions, and training that is practical, actionable, and enables them to cost-effectively address manage their cybersecurity risks. This NIST Small Business Cybersecurity Corner puts these key resources in one place.
All resources on the Small Business Cybersecurity Corner website are free and draw from information produced by federal agencies, including NIST and several primary contributors, as well non-profit organizations and several for-profit companies. These resources will be updated and expanded regularly. The website does not provide operational assistance to individual companies, but it does list both federal agency contacts and some non-profit contacts that can offer that assistance.
