National Cyber Security Alliance To further the cyber readiness of the nation’s small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs), the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA) is announcing the launch of a new initiative, CyberSecure My Business. The project is a comprehensive, national program comprised of interactive training based on the National Institute of Standards and Technology Cybersecurity Framework, webinars and web resources to help businesses be resistant to and resilient from cyberattacks. The first webinar takes place on Oct. 10 from 2 p.m. – 3 p. m. EDT and will address ransomware and phishing. Learn more and register for upcoming webinars.

“SMBs are critical to our economic and national security,” said Michael Kaiser, NCSA’s executive director. “NCSA is thrilled to introduce CyberSecure My Business to help organizations proactively protect their customers, employees and intellectual property – and by extension their reputations and success.”
