Small Business Toolkit
The National Cybersecurity Society (NCSS) is committed to improving the on-line safety and security of the small business community. Our goal is to enable and empower small businesses to obtain cybersecurity services and educate them on the type of protection they need.
To this end, the NCSS has developed this tool kit that identifies cybersecurity capabilities we believe fit the small business environment. The NCSS has defined the functional categories needed to protect a small business – those functional category headings are listed below from 1-x and are in bold. These functional categories align with the educational aids provided on our website and through educational events we host. Under each functional category are the companies we believe are well suited for a small business. We have conducted a review of these companies – their services, capabilities and prices and in some cases these companies have signed a partnership agreement with the NCSS to offer these services at a discount for our members.
Our team continues to research products and services, and keep this list updated as we find new services. We provide this toolkit as an aid to our members and derive no financial gain from these recommendations. If you are a cybersecurity vendor and would like to be considered for inclusion, contact us through our contact-us form.
Lastly, as a small business owner – we are here to help. If you have any issues with any of these companies, please let us know.
