[FR][Wed Nov 11 17:16:39 2020]“I have just completed the Cyber Readiness Program. Thank you for this opportunity to become more informed on Cyber Security. I appreciate the structured development of our Cyber policies, and of myself as our Cyber Leader. While we have great external IT Management; we were missing strong internal policies and training for our workforce. This program has helped me put policies in place and has given me the tools to roll them out and to continue with ongoing training. I highly recommend this program to small businesses who don’t have a dedicated IT team. Lay persons like myself can take on Cyber Readiness even if IT is not their area of expertise. It is so important to have this internal process, even if you have external IT management.”

My favorite part about the program is how it breaks down cybersecurity into four distinct bite-sized pieces that are easy to understand, and simplifies how to improve processes. Thanks to this program, any employee who operates a computer here can easily understand why these four issues are a concern and how they can helpto minimize risk”
