The city offers a cyber security program
Carlsbad invites local small businesses to participate in the Cyber Security Awareness Program. The city is working with the San Diego Cyber Center of Excellence to offer several free benefits. Carlsbad-based small business owners (with less than 100 employees) can learn more about their online exposure and get a risk assessment from RiskRecon, MasterCard; and procure training resources to help employees become more aware of the Internet. This educational program is free for companies in Carlsbad or those that are suppliers to companies in Carlsbad. Log on to https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/8H7G6G7.
The company achieves a green certificate
Calsense, a smart irrigation company, is now officially a green company. After working with Carlsbad’s Green Business Program, the company earned the California Green Business Network certification. The process involved Calsense staff implementing several operational changes across the Green Team. Among the changes Calsense has established are: placing signs at its headquarters in Carlsbad to encourage energy and water savings in the building; switching to sustainable bubble transport alternatives (and using a carbon-neutral shipping company); and training staff on proper recycling and switching to green certified janitor products. Calsense helps customers save water, manage work and ultimately save money through smart irrigation. Visit www.calsense.com.
