Cybersecurity Checklist for Small Businesses
The European Union Agency for Cybersecurity (ENISA) and the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA) have jointly drafted a checklist that provides baseline tasks that small business owners can implement and gain more peace of mind that their businesses, information, and employees are more secure online. The checklist elaborates on four cybersecurity challenges faced by small businesses.

|Low Cyber-Awareness||Cybersecurity may be a complex issue connected with technical solutions and measures, but it must be a part of the culture for small businesses as a successful cyber-attack can cause serious financial and/or reputational harm to any size of business.|
|Lack of Remote IT Security||As more employees log in to their home computers to work, more data and communications are being transmitted across insecure channels- ultimately leaving valuable business content exposed.|
|High Cost of Cybersecurity Solutions||The cost of technical solutions, organizational overhead, cybersecurity training, and cybersecurity expertise require funds that many businesses simply do not have.|
|Increased Attacks such as Phishing||Teleworking has opened new opportunities for cybercriminals through ‘urgent’ and ‘fear-based’ emails to trick online users into revealing personal information, click on malicious links or attachments, and inadvertently download malware directly on their computers.|
HaveIBeenPwned.com is an online repository of email addresses and passwords that have been collected from publicly disclosed data breaches. Enter your email address and the site will tell you if that email address has appeared in data breaches and, if so, from which sites.
If you use the Chrome web browser, Google's Password Checkup extension will check your password against known data breaches when you sign into a site. This will not give Google your password, but wherever you sign-in, if you enter a username and password that is no longer safe due to appearing in a data breach known to Google, you'll receive an alert."
