CYBER SECURITY BUSINESS RESOURCES
The Federal Communications Commission has released a Cyber Security Planning Guide that is intended for small businesses. The guide provides practice tips for various aspects of data security, including network security, website security, facility security, operational security, incident response and reporting, among others.
In February 2014, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) released the Framework for Improving Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity. The Framework provides guidance, based upon existing standards, for establishing a cyber security program. Intended to be customized based upon the size of an organization, the Framework is a useful resource for ensuring that an organization’s data security protocols are in line with current practices.
This Checklist of Responsible Information-Handling Practices is published by the Privacy Rights Clearinghouse. The checklist details privacy and security principles that businesses should be implementing.
This website is published by the National CyberSecurity Alliance. The business page provides information and tips for businesses with developing a cybersecurity plan, with training employees on data security issues and with protecting client information.
