Cybersecurity for Small Businesses

It's Cyber Monday! 

In-between your online shopping (or filling orders from your own online shop!), take some time to check out "Cybersecurity for Small Businesses," a self-paced online course from the U.S. Small Business Administration that helps business owners safeguard their information from computer attacks and determine their readiness against security breaches.

Small business owners will learn the types of information that should be secured, how to protect themselves from attacks or unintentional damage, guard from decreased productivity caused by security breaches and evaluate security tools and techniques.  The course gives useful and practical steps to take to protect a business’ operations.

Cybersecurity for Small Businesses is self-paced and also offers best practices for guarding against cyber threats, potential computer weaknesses and the corrective actions for risk management.

Course participants completing the online course can earn a certificate of completion from the SBA.  The SBA Learning Center offers free courses covering topics such as Starting, Managing, or Financing a Business, and can be found at
