Montana Cybersecurity Grant

Montana Cybersecurity Grant

Montana's Cybersecurity Program Grant, backed by a $2 million fund, lets businesses recieve up to $8,000 in reimbursement for cybersecurity measures.

Adversis often begins with a comprehensive information security risk assessment which brings immediate benefits in identifying unrealized gaps, providing tailored information security policies, and a strategy to take control of your data and information risk.

Adversis is an accredited Montana business.

Am I Eligible?

Do you have between 5 and 50 FTE employees? What's an FTE? A full time employee is someone who works an average of at least 30 hours per week for more than 120 days in a year. An employee is on a company’s payroll and receives wages and benefits. Employees must be reported on the businesses UI-5 form.

Have you had taken previous cybersecurity measures (other than standard anti-virus software)?

The fine print: Are you a Montana-based business? In business more than a year? Pay your taxes and in good Federal standing? For profit? Not a canabis business?
