Business Accreditation Program
The Greater Cheyenne Chamber of Commerce works hard to provide businesses the tools and resources to operate at their best. The Business Accreditation Program is a partnership between local cyber security experts, Cyber Wyoming, and your Chamber of Commerce to train local, business-minded human resources to respond to the Ground Based Strategic Deterrent (GBSD) project.
The scope of the project is to increase small business cybersecurity advocacy, education, awareness, and adoption of best practices in the Cheyenne community by training a cybersecurity business counselor (CBC) who will assist businesses and reside in the Cheyenne Chamber of Commerce.
According to the Cybersecurity Small Businesses by Paulsen in 2016, nearly half of cybercrimes are targeted at small to medium sized businesses. Yet the 2016 CSID/Experian Small Business Security Report’s states that 51% of small businesses are not allocating any budget to cyber risk mitigations, so it is clear that there is a gap between need and adoption of cybersecurity best practices.
The program will help businesses walk through cyber checklists, provide educational materials and presentations, manage a cybersecurity committee that all Chamber members can access, and provide tools and resources to businesses to meet best practices in cybersecurity.
