The CyberSafe Project

Our Mission

“Deliver tools and solutions to safeguard against cyber attacks.”

It’s that simple.

Our Purpose

Cyberattacks are on the rise and the number one targets are small businesses and start-ups. Small businesses are a prime target for cyber-attacks due to the lack of basic security protocols and belief that they do not store valuable data.

The SBDC CyberSafe program is being developed for small business team members who are non-technical: the gym owners, the clinic workers, the restaurant shop owners, and the manufacturing floor managers.

Why Use Cyber Safe?
It's Free
CyberSafe is 100% free to business owners looking to protect their businesses from cyberattacks.
Access to an assessment that helps pinpoint areas of weakness while providing suggestions to strengthen defenses.
CyberSafe provides access to a variety of information that will allow business owners to run their business worry-free.
