The City of Carlsbad believes that now, more than ever, business resiliency is imperative. Coming out of the pandemic, businesses – especially small businesses – are in vulnerable positions and cannot afford another major impact on their operations. 

Over the last year, many companies have pivoted more of their operations online, from remote work and telecommuting to eCommerce and online marketing. Cyber threats, including hacks, malware, ransomware, and other vulnerabilities, present a persistent and ongoing threat to these online operations. Nationally, cyber-attacks cost companies tens-of-billions of dollars each year. Many businesses look at a company’s cyber hygiene in determining their contractors, and many insurance companies look at cyber risk when determining rates.


 The City of Carlsbad is proud to announce a partnership with the Cyber Center of Excellence (CCOE) to assist Carlsbad businesses with becoming more cyber-aware. Carlsbad businesses will be able to gain a better understanding of the cyber threat landscape via a presentation from the FBI’s San Diego Cyber Task Force. Join us for a free informational webinar on May 18, 10:00am to 11:30am.

Participants will hear from FBI San Diego Cyber Task Force, CCOE, RiskRecon, and ESET. Any Carlsbad business can participate in the webinar. Risk assessment and training programs will be for Carlsbad small businesses only with fewer than 100 employees.
