The CyberSafe Project

Our mission

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

It’s that simple

Our why

Cyberattacks are on the rise and the number one target 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-owner, the clinic, the restaurant shop owner, the manufacturing floor managers.
