Cybersecurity Roundtable: Protecting Small Businesses

10:30 am - 12:00 pm EDT
Commission Meeting Room, FCC Headquarters, 445 12th Street, SW, Washington, DC 20554

On May 16, 2011, during National Small Business Week, FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski convened the Cybersecurity Roundtable: Protecting Small Businesses, with leading industry executives and government experts in cybersecurity and information technology.

American small businesses have generated sixty-four percent of net new jobs over the past fifteen years, helping to lead our nation’s innovation and economic growth. In a rapidly evolving virtual marketplace, where each cyber attack costs small and medium sized businesses an average of nearly $200,000, business owners must vigilantly protect against information security risks that result in billions of dollars in lost revenue. However, many businesses continue to struggle to understand and implement available solutions.
