Summary by Dirk Langeveld
In the wake of several major cyberattacks against American companies earlier this year, the federal government has created a central resource to provide information and assistance on cybersecurity issues.
StopRansomware.gov, a joint effort of the Department of Homeland Security and Department of Justice, helps individuals, businesses, and organizations understand what ransomware is, how to protect yourself against it, and what to do if you are affected.
The Connecticut Small Business Development Center recently noted the resource as well as its own efforts to assist local businesses with cybersecurity. These included a cybersecurity webinar with Dr. Teresa Piliouras, CEO at Technical Consulting & Research (now available as a recording) and business advisors who can assist companies in developing cybersecurity plans.
