Cyber training program available for Maryland small businesses

08/24/2022 | Karen Glenn Hood

A new program aimed at assisting small businesses with targeted cybersecurity training and knowledge will soon be available in Maryland.

The Small Business Cybersecurity Resilience in Maryland (SCRIM)  program will provide assistance to up to 40 businesses to help them mitigate future cyber attacks through training of their employees as well as installing advanced hardware and software up to $10,000 per business.

SCRIM will give all employees of selected businesses basic cybersecurity training, including password creation, data backups, physical security, phishing scams, and incident response, as well as a more intensive curriculum designed for specific industries.

The cyber initiative is made possible by a $930,155 grant from the U.S. Small Business Administration that was recently awarded to the Maryland Department of Commerce. The agency worked closely with several local partners, including the Maryland Small Business Development Center (SBDC) and the Cybersecurity Association of Maryland (CAMI) to develop the program.
