Course detail: TECH8000 - Cybersecurity for Small Business

Designed and built by an Associate Business Continuity Professional working inside of the Kansas School of Business, the Kansas Small Business Development Center’s Cybersecurity for Small Business online courses provide the background that small business owners need to better understand how they can protect their business’ digital footprint.

The Kansas SBDC course will allow business owners to take detailed look inside the growing threat that cybersecurity poses.

Users will have the opportunity to focus on the five critical areas of Cybersecurity:

  • Identify: Users will learn how to develop an understanding of their digital environments to manage risk to systems, assets and data.
  • Protect: Course takers will learn what they can do to develop and implement safeguards to limit or contain the potential impact of a cybersecurity event.
  • Detect: Course takers will learn measures that can assist them in determining when a cybersecurity event has occurred.
  • Respond: If a cybersecurity event occurs, course takers will be ready to contain impact and bring their businesses back online.
  • Recover: Course takers will learn what measures must be taken to truly bring a business back to life following a cybersecurity event.
