Cybersecurity Health Check

This opportunity will match volunteers with small businesses for a small business cybersecurity health check. The volunteers will talk through a checklist of questions with the small business representative, help them understand their current cyber risk level and ways to minimize that risk. Meetings can take place virtually or in-person, depending on geography of both participants and preferences.


As an integral part of the global economy, it’s estimated that over 40% of small businesses have experienced a cyber-attack. If that’s happened to you, you know how devasting it can be. Fortunately, there are qualified professionals volunteering to help. ISC2 is the world's largest association of cybersecurity professionals with over 200,000 certification holding members in all parts of the world. Our Cybersecurity Health Check pairs ISC2 volunteers with qualified small businesses to help the small businesses understand and minimize their cybersecurity risk.

The Cybersecurity Health Check will take a few hours of your time, both on your own and meeting with the volunteer or small business. The Health Check provides a cybersecurity checklist showing places where small businesses can mitigate their risk and what they are doing well. This program is completely free to you. Our volunteers give their time and skills to help make this a safer cyber world!


Attend a training. Sign a volunteer agreement. Meet virtually or in person with small business representative to go through a questionnaire. Complete the Cybersecurity Health Checklist to assess their cyber risk and meet with them to explain the findings.
