Sen. Maggie Hassan Introduces Small Businesses Cybersecurity Act

1 min read

Sen. Maggie Hassan, D-N.H., has proposed a bill to enable small business development centers to help improve the cybersecurity posture of small companies.

The Small Businesses Cybersecurity Act would create a federal program to offer grants to small business development centers to enable them provide cybersecurity training for employees, conduct cyber assessments of small companies and support other cybersecurity initiatives of such enterprises, Hassan’s office said Thursday.

As small businesses continue to modernize and do more work online, the risk of cyberattacks becomes more serious,” said Hassan.

I encourage my colleagues to pass this bill so that Small Business Development Centers in New Hampshire and across the country can keep working to protect small businesses from cyberattacks and help them thrive,” she added.
