National Preparedness Month – for Business Tip 2

Safeguarding Your Small Business

Tip 2: Implement Robust Security Measures

Thanks to the Private Sector Emergency Management Association (PSEMA) for providing these great tips!

2. Implement Robust Security Measures:
Adopt a multi-layered approach to cybersecurity. Deploy firewalls, antivirus software, and intrusion detection systems to protect your network. Regularly update software and patch vulnerabilities to stay ahead of emerging threats. Consider encryption for sensitive data, both in transit and at rest.

Most small business leaders don’t speak tech.  

It is like learning a different language!

If you are struggling to understand just what a ‘multi-layered approach to cybersecurity’ means to you and your business, you aren’t alone.  This is why so many other small businesses have joined Wyoming’s Cybersecurity Competition for Small Business each year!

What does it mean to you?  Your confidence level with the subject of cybersecurity will increase dramatically.

What’s the time commitment?  Not much, only 4-6 hours per month for 7-8 months.

What’s the reward?  You’ll sleep better at night, and the winners will speak at Wyoming’s Cybersecurity Conference.

What does it cost?  It’s free to any Wyoming small business because of our amazing members and sponsors!
