Description

What's Your Defence Against a Cybersecurity Attack on Your Business?

Are You Aware You Have a Legal Responsibility to Disclose An Attack?

"The median total cost of an attack was $133,000 – not just the cost of the ransom, but lost hours, downtime, device and network costs, and lost opportunities." - Sophos.com (01/02/2018)

"Global damage costs in connection with ransomware attacks are predicted to reach $11.5 billion annually by 2019." - cybersecurityventures.com (6/28/2018)

"In May 2016 the University of Calgary paid CAD$20,000 after ransomware crippled multiple systems." - ucalgary.ca (6/8/2016)

In the event of a cybersecurity breach, the cost to your business could include lost revenue, additional labour costs, damage to operating systems, legal fees, and punitive damages.

Join SME Victoria and Ian Taylor of Tecnet Canada to learn

  • the difference between ransomware, malware, social engineering, and phishing

  • how to guard against common threats

  • what happens in a ransomware attack

  • how to mitigate costs in the event of an attack

  • what your legal responsibilities are under the new Federal data-breach disclosure rules

If some or all of your data is stored in the cloud, your business is a target for a potential cybersecurity attack. Knowing the facts about these threats can help protect your interests.


About the Speaker - Ian Taylor

Born and raised in Sarnia, Ontario, Ian moved to the West Coast in 1999 and never looked back. He spent his early days as a ski-bum in Whistler, but when he decided to ‘grow up’ and get a real job he moved to Vancouver and began a successful career with a Fortune 500 company in the tech sector. Ian’s early successes led to his rapid promotion from Sales Rep to Client Executive, Sales Manager/Technology Specialist, and ultimately Regional Agency Owner. Ian was recognized as a leader among his peers and in 2008 he was recognized as one of Xerox Canada’s Emerging Leaders and participated in the Top Gun Leadership Development Continuum.
