SBA Launches Tech Security Workshops


Highlighting the importance of data security, the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) has announced a series of free workshops for companies to attend. The computer security workshops, which begin this week and run through the fall, will take place in 11 states and dozens of cities across the country. "Small businesses around the country can take advantage of free computer security workshops to help strengthen their information security, determine their readiness against security breaches and safeguard their business information from computer attacks," the SBA said in a statement this week.

The workshops are being conducted by the SBA in conjunction with the Commerce Department's National Institute of Standards and Technology and the Federal Bureau of Investigation's InfraGard division. This joint federal partnership promotes information security training and computer protection for the nation's small business community and will help to identify information security vulnerabilities that can put small businesses at risk.

The workshops will also offer tools and techniques used to assess, maintain and guard company information and systems. Small business owners will learn how to protect themselves from intentional attacks or unintentional damage, guard themselves from decreased productivity caused by security breaches and evaluate the needed security tools and techniques. Participants will also learn useful and practical steps to take to protect their business' operations.
