Free Workshop Helps Small Business Owners

Reduce Cyber Threats

 

LITTLE ROCK--The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) Arkansas District Office, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) are sponsoring a free workshop for small business owners and organizations to learn how to secure their electronic data. 

 

Richard Kissel, senior information security analyst for NIST, will lead the Little Rock workshop.  With over 20 years experience in the information security profession, Kissel is author of the guide Small Business Information Security.  He spends his time on the road educating entrepreneurs about the potential security trouble spots caused by e-mail, social media, online banking, web surfing and downloading software.

 

“There’s a very small set of actions that a small business can do to avoid being an easy target for hackers and cyber criminals,” said Kissel.  “But, they have to be done and done consistently.”

 

As part of the United States Department of Commerce, the National Institute of Standards and Technology works to develop and promote measurement, standards, and technology to enhance productivity, facilitate trade, and improve the quality of life.
