Cybersecurity is not just for the big brands. In fact, hackers will use small businesses to infiltrate their main target.

As a small business owner, it is important that you protect your business from cybersecurity threats – from a big data breach to an angry employee who withholds passwords.

CTSBDC and CBIA have partnered to provide you an action-oriented, no-jargon Small Business Cybersecurity Workbook that will walk you through step-by-step to secure your business. It takes you through 5 key areas:

  1. Identify – What structures and practices do you have in place to identify cyber threats?
  2. Protect – What are the basic practices you have in place to protect your systems?
  3. Detect – What do you use to identify someone or something malicious?
  4. Respond – How will you deal with a breach if and when it occurs?
  5. Recover – How will you get your business back to normal after a breach?

The workbook was originally created by and used with permission from Delaware SBDC, University of Delaware Office of Economic Innovation & Partnerships, and cybersecurity company Artemis.
