Cybersecurity Survey for Propel Stakholder Forum
The San Diego Regional Leadership Group (RLG) is updating its long-term strategy to better address more recent and future potential challenges to our regional defense industry and needs your insight and expertise. We kindly ask that you take 2-3 minutes to complete this 10-question survey to help us understand your industry. The results to this survey are entirely anonymous and will be informative in nature. We will use the results from this survey at the Propel San Diego Stakeholder Forum on April 23, 2019. For questions or concerns, please contact Nathan Loveland with San Diego Military Advisory Council (SDMAC) – Propel San Diego Program Manager. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Critical Infrastructure Cyber Community Voluntary Program
The DHS Critical Infrastructure Cyber Community Voluntary Program (C³) provides cybersecurity resources to owners and operators of critical infrastructure; small and midsize businesses; and State, Local, Tribal, and Territorial (SLTT) Governments. Per Executive Order 13636, the C³ promotes the Cybersecurity Framework, which was developed by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).
Leaders in Business Community Resilience
Developing resilient communities against all hazards requires leadership from government and business. Preparing the workforce, building safe facilities, investing in supplier relationships, and connecting to the community are all key pillars of true business community resilience—from the boardroom to the storefront. The path to leadership involves connecting with the right people and resources and committing to action by helping the business community and whole community mitigate the hazards they face and bounce back quickly after an incident. Plus, it can decrease the overall costs of disruptions and disasters.
Cybersecurity for Small Business
The Internet allows businesses of all sizes and from any location to reach new and larger markets and provides opportunities to work more efficiently by using computer-based tools. Whether a company is thinking of adopting cloud computing or just using email and maintaining a website, cybersecurity should be a part of the plan. Theft of digital information has become the most commonly reported fraud, surpassing physical theft. Every business that uses the Internet is responsible for creating a culture of security that will enhance business and consumer confidence. In October 2012, the FCC re-launched the Small Biz Cyber Planner 2.0, an online resource to help small businesses create customized cybersecurity plans.
The FCC also released an updated one-page Cybersecurity Tip Sheet. The quick resource features new tips on creating a mobile device action plan and on payment and credit card security.
FICO Cybersecurity Score
There’s a lot of buzz about cybersecurity ratings — measures of a firm’s cybersecurity risk — but most businesses don’t understand how they work or know how they rank. The FCC thinks it’s absolutely critical they know this information. That’s why they announced that they are making their own cybersecurity score free of charge to companies worldwide.
Now any company can vet the accuracy of their cybersecurity score before they’re unknowingly assessed by other organizations in their supply chain. As insurers begin using these scores in pricing cybersecurity insurance and as organizations start using ratings to vet supply chain and partner risk, businesses will need to vet the details used to assess their security posture — just as consumers check their FICO Credit Score before applying for loans.
