Why Cybersecurity is Relevant to Everyone
This webinar will provide safe computer and network usage tips for small business owners. It concerns not only businesses, but also individuals.
To support a community effort to advance SBOM technologies, processes, and practices, CISA will facilitate the 2023 CISA SBOM-a-Rama. The goal of this meeting is to help the broader software and security community understand the current state of SBOM and what efforts have been made by different parts of the SBOM community, including CISA-facilitated community-led work and other activity from sectors and governments. Attendees are invited to ask questions, share comments, and raise further issues that need attention. A full agenda will be posted in advance of the meeting at https://cisa.gov/SBOM.
This event is open to anyone. CISA welcomes participation from anyone interested in learning about the current state of SBOM practice and implementation, including private sector practitioners, policy experts, academics, and representatives from non-U.S. organizations. A form to allow individuals to register their interest in either in-person or virtual participation will be available at https://cisa.gov/SBOM.
Cybersecurity Training for Your Small Business
Have you thought about how your business would survive a cyber attack? The JFCAC Small Business Resource Center is providing a FREE virtual 60-minute Cybersecurity training to entrepreneurs and small business owners to educate them on the importance of recognizing cyber threats, learn and implement safe browsing habits, and to properly utilize authentication tools.
Defending Internet Accessible Systems (IR104)
CISA is proud to offer the cybersecurity awareness webinar, Defending Internet Accessible Systems (IR104) on Wednesday, June 21, 2023, from 11 a.m. to noon EDT. We are excited to share this information with stakeholders across the Federal enterprise and nationally.
Internet accessible systems have become the backbone of modern business and communication infrastructure, from smartphones to web applications such as Outlook to the explosive growth of the Internet of Things (IoT). Each of these systems, applications, and devices, however, can be targeted by threat actors and used to conduct malicious activity if left unsecured—worse, improperly configured and ill maintained systems can leave vulnerabilities and sensitive information open to exploit.
Join us for the following information and more:
- Common attacks and vulnerabilities: Understand common vulnerabilities of internet accessible systems, how they are exploited by threat actors, and how to mitigate them to prevent attacks from succeeding.
- CISA guidance: Learn key guidance, resources, and best practices to address vulnerabilities and prepare effective incident response and recovery.
- Case studies: Examine the methods and impacts of real-life cyber-attacks, and how the targets responded and recovered.
- Knowledge check: Knowledge check questions will be asked throughout the course to reinforce key concepts and important takeaways.
This awareness webinar is designed for both technical and non-technical audiences
Speaker Series: NCCoE Learning Series: Security Segmentation for Small Manufacturers
As manufacturers are increasingly targeted in cyberattacks, any gaps in cybersecurity leave small manufacturers vulnerable to attacks. Small manufacturers tend to operate facilities with limited staff and resources, often causing cybersecurity to fall by the wayside as something that costs too much time and money. Additionally, bringing together various cybersecurity standards, frameworks, and guides to derive a coherent action plan is a challenge even for those experienced in cybersecurity. Security segmentation is a cost effective and efficient security design approach for protecting cyber assets by grouping them based on their communication and security requirements.
Join us on June 28, 2023 from 2:00-2:45 p.m. ET where we will discuss the NCCoE’s most recent manufacturing publication, NIST Cybersecurity White Paper: Security Segmentation in a Small Manufacturing Environment. The paper outlines a practical six-step approach, incorporating the NIST Cybersecurity Framework (CSF) and NIST IR 8183 Cybersecurity Framework Manufacturing Profile (“CSF Manufacturing Profile”), that manufacturers can follow to implement security segmentation and mitigate cyber vulnerabilities in their manufacturing environments.
Join us on June 28 for a discussion where you’ll:
- meet the publication authors
- receive an overview of the new white paper with key takeaways
- have the opportunity to ask the publication authors questions
- learn how to stay involved in the NCCoE’s manufacturing-related efforts
