Better Business Bureau's work on Cybersecurity (CYBER$3CUR1TY)

While I was at the NIST CSF Workshop, something I learned about is the work being done by the Better Business Bureau on Cybersecurity, especially for small businesses.  This under the tagline of CYBER$3CUR1TY.

Tho to be accurate, this is coming from the Council of Better Business Bureaus, which is the umbrella organization for BBBs in North America.

All of what they have may be found HERE.

The heart of what they do is in their 5-Step Approach:

And this looks very similar.  Where have we seen these 5 steps???  Oh, its the 5 core elements of the NIST CSF.  :)

They have been working with the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA) is the nation's leading nonprofit public-private partnership promoting the safe and secure use of the Internet and digital privacy.  This is the group behind National Cybersecurity Awareness Month, which is October of each year.

They have done a very nice report on the State of Cybersecurity in small businesses.  You can get a softcopy HERE.  I was fortunate to get a hardcopy at the NIST Workshop.

Having done work with some small businesses, they are in deparate need for help.  They don't have the expertise (sorry, having some friend of a friend or relative that "knows computers" isn't enough), or the resources to often hire the right people.  The materials the BBB has put together here is pretty good and needs a wide exposure.

Check this out, get it out to people you know.  This needs to be widely distributed, in my opinion.
