While there are many resources concerning cybersecurity out there, it can sometimes be difficult to find information tailored for smaller organizations instead of consumers or large enterprises. Luckily the FTC realizes that the bad guys aren’t particular about the size of the businesses they rip off and have created a guide for small business cybersecurity, which was submitted to us by our friend Wes Pollard of Home Bank.

Included in the guide are fundamental topics such as securing routers and other network equipment, managing software and device firmware updates and security measures like multi-factor authentication. Software and hardware are only part of the equation, though, and the FTC’s guide also includes helpful training for your employees, including videos and handouts.

While we hope you’ll take advantage of the webinars and training movies we provide at tour.infotex.com, we believe “the more the merrier” when it comes to awareness messages and think this guide is an excellent resource you should check out!
