Wyoming Cybersecurity competition Wants you

LARAMIE – CyberWyoming and the Wyoming Business Report want your business to join the 2018 Wyoming Cybersecurity Competition for Small Businesses and Organizations. 

CyberWyoming is offering a free informational webinar about the competition on June 7 from noon to 1. To sign up for the webinar, email info@madesafeinwyoming.org . The competition, which closes in September, is sponsored by the Wyoming Business Report and CyberWyoming.

“If you enter now, there will be plenty of time to meet your cybersecurity goals but if you put it off until August you are going to miss a great opportunity,” said Pat Wolfinbarger, co-founder of CyberWyoming and Made Safe in Wyoming.

The top three business winners will earn a speaking engagement at the Wyoming Cybersecurity Symposium in October; the use of the Made Safe in Wyoming economic development logo and marketing materials to show their customers they meet best practices in cybersecurity; recognition statewide via press releases, an article on CyberWyoming’s and the Wyoming Business Report’s website; a promotional video outlining the business’ successful efforts to meet best practices in cybersecurity; and follow-up articles about cybersecurity in the Wyoming Business Report . However, all businesses that participate in the competition will be recognized at the Cybersecurity Symposium, on the two websites, and in a statewide press release.

“This competition takes on a new, positive role. With this competition, we are motivating business owners and recognizing them for their efforts to meet best practices in cybersecurity,” said Abbey Palma, former events director at the Wyoming Business Report .
There is no fee to enter the competition; however, some investments may need to be made, for instance, in technical infrastructure, policy writing, or cyberliability insurance. As part of the competition and to create a baseline for the judges, Made Safe in Wyoming is offering their cybersecurity business checklist consultation for free to all participants. 

“We don’t actually sell hardware or software and we don’t sell insurance or legal services related to cybersecurity,” said Wolfinbarger. “Since we are a nonprofit organization, we consider ourselves a non-biased third party to provide tailored advice on the cyber risks small businesses can avoid.” Wolfinbarger said there are some things small businesses can do in-house and others about which they may need to consult an expert. “But it is a fallacy that it is going to cost more than purchasing home-use equipment at a box store,” he said.

CyberWyoming is responsible for monitoring efforts to meet best practices and helping the business owners document their progress via the Made Safe in Wyoming program. The final step is submitting the documentation to the judges, chosen by Wyoming Business Report staff.

The competition is also a response to a call for enhanced cybersecurity practices in the state made by Gov. Matt Mead at the Wyoming Broadband Summit in October 2017. “For all of you in business, I encourage you to help us find solutions on cybersecurity,” Mead told the summit. “If we improve speed, if we improve capacity and we don’t take care of cybersecurity, we’re just creating a lot of problems.”

Business Council Offers Energy Efficiency Grants
The Wyoming Business Council’s State Energy Office has $325,000 in competitive federal grants available for Wyoming local governments and small businesses seeking to cut their electric bills. The money is split between three programs.

There is $100,000 available to towns, cities and counties for improvements and retrofits like installing insulation; adding weather sealing; purchase of Energy Star or solar powered appliances; upgrades of showers and faucets; or replacement of boilers, hot water heaters, HVAC systems, windows and doors.
Another $150,000 is set aside for towns, cities and counties to retrofit current lighting systems to energy-efficient systems with occupancy controls and auto dimming according to natural light.

Applicants must sign up for the Wyoming Energy Conservation Improvement Program by June 30 to receive a free energy assessment. The assessment must be completed before submitting an application. Applications are due Aug. 31.

Small businesses, nonprofits and local governments are all encouraged to apply to the Small Business Energy Audit/Retrofit Grant Program. There is $75,000 available.

Energy efficiency improvements are often overlooked as a cost-savings opportunity. Grants are a not to exceed $5,000 to entities pursuing an energy audit and retrofits that were identified in the audit.The program funds 75% of the cost of an energy audit and some energy efficiency improvements.

Energy audits examine ways to reduce energy consumption. The program can also pay a small portion of the actual improvements identified in the audit, such as lighting upgrades or insulation. Residences and housing units are ineligible.

All grant funds must be expended by June 30, 2019.
