Cybersecurity for Small Business

Cybersecurity

This program is designed to provide awareness through training, one-on-one assistance with cybersecurity action plan development and implementation working with other UTSA specialty centers on cybersecurity.

Information protection and security are vital to the sustainability and success of the small business and the national economy.  As advocates and resource partners for the business community and service providers for the federal government, it is our role to educate and assist with federal contracting compliance guidelines and information security awareness.  More than two-thirds of all small businesses report that are dependent on the internet for day-to-day activities.  Yet, according to the National Cybersecurity Alliance, most small businesses don’t do enough to protect themselves online.  Twenty percent of small businesses don’t have or use anti-virus software.  Sixty percent don’t use any encryption on their wireless networks, and fewer than 30% have a security plan in place.
