Restore CNY is made up of a group of people who care about Central New York and the people who live in the community.
Our focus is on building up the youth and families in the community. We do that through providing various programs that are affordable or are of no cost. This is made possible through the donations of individuals and local businesses. Our current initiative is the North Country Hub – a youth center with an after school drop in program and different activities offered throughout the year to provide a safe place where kids feel like they belong.

BBB Webinar Series: Cybersecurity with the FBI and CISA
Cybersecurity is often overlooked by small businesses. It’s essential to be vigilant and know when something could be wrong. Join BBB as we welcome experts from the FBI and CISA to discuss current threats and ways to mitigate them. No company is too small to be potentially hacked or targeted by a cyber-criminal. A false sense of security might make you an easier victim. Our nation is experiencing a heightened emphasis on cybersecurity related to the Russia-Ukraine conflict, but what does that mean for a small business? In this webinar, gain insight and answers – in understandable terminology – from the FBI, the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), and Better Business Bureau. Please note that this session will NOT be recorded. Date: April 20, 2022 Time: 9:30 a.m. Register HERE
