Small and minority-owned businesses need opportunities in larger sectors, and the U.S. supply chain needs them there. But too often, they are held back by a lack of cyber readiness. In addition to helping to build cybercrime defenses, IWS’s program facilitates business partnerships.
Not only do businesses need protection from hackers, they need a system considered safe enough for dealings with the federal government. Tech firm VILLA-TECH, Inc. was among the first to get CyberReadyMBE™ training when it was piloted in 2021. Now, they are looking to land the most prestigious contract of their career.
The NMSDC announced it will extend critical cybersecurity training to its 15,000+ minority business enterprises across 23 regions. CyberReadyMBE™ is a five-week program developed by Industry Workforce Solutions to provide pathways for companies to increase their cyber capabilities and resiliency, allowing them to become integrated into corporate and public-sector supply chains.
The NMSDC begins its rollout of the CyberReadyMBE™ program at its Chicago council to combat cyberattacks. NMSDC and its partners are preparing for cyber growth and supply chain resiliency with the launch. Together, key strategic partners will propel MBEs to stand ready to increase cybersecurity resiliency and capabilities for corporations and federal agencies.
NEW YORK – The National Minority Supplier Development Council (NMSDC) will extend critical cybersecurity training to its 15,000+ certified minority business enterprises (MBEs) across 23 regions.
