NIST, in partnership with the Small Business Administration and the Federal Bureau of Investigation has had educational outreach to the small business community since 2002. NIST schedules, promotes, and conducts information security workshops for small businesses throughout the United States.
The core information in the workshops has been collected in NISTIR 7621. This document covers the fundamentals of information security for small business. The intent was to publish a short, easy to read document that small business owners could use to protect the information, computers, and networks used in their small businesses.
