What do a business's invoices have in common with e-mail? If both are done on the same computer, the business owner may want to think more about computer security. Information-payroll records, proprietary information, client or employee data-is essential to a business's success.

NIST Computer Security Division announces that NISTIR 7621, Small Business Information Security: The Fundamentals, has been released. NISTIR 7621 is intended to help small businesses and small organizations implement the fundamental components of an effective information security program.
