The stats around the number of businesses impacted by online crimes are staggering. However, many business owners are simply unprepared for a cyber attack. Of course, small business owners often do not have the security resources of larger firms, but that doesn’t mean you should risk letting your businesses become a cybercrime statistic.

Along these lines, the SBA has stepped up to provide a educational online course: Cybersecurity for Small Businesses. This free course is designed to inform business owners about cyber crime so they’re better prepared to protect themselves, their business(es) and their data.
