Resources to Help SMEs Manage Cybersecurity Risks When Doing Business in the Transatlantic Marketplace

Resources to Help SMEs Manage Cybersecurity Risks When Doing Business in the Transatlantic Marketplace

As small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) increasingly rely upon online services and digital devices to operate more effectively and efficiently across geographies, cybersecurity has become a fundamental risk that must be addressed alongside other business risks. This webinar will enable SMEs to be more resilient and compete more effectively in the face of increasing cybersecurity threats. The specific audience for this webinar is SMEs that export or that are not yet export ready and need to build awareness of options and resources. 

This webinar supports the efforts of the U.S.-EU Trade and Technology Council (TTC) Working Group 9 to improve SME access to and use of digital tools.  For more information about the TTC, please visit:

During this webinar, speakers from the National Institute of Standards of Technology (NIST) will provide an overview of NIST’s international engagement efforts, will share NIST’s small business cybersecurity resources, including the NIST Cybersecurity Framework 2.0 Small Business Quick Start Guide, and will highlight the export assistance provided by the NIST Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP) National Network.
