Event Details

Every day, you hear news like: “Massive Internet Outage due to DDoS attack”, “LinkedIn Lost 167 Million Account Credentials in Data Breach”, “Yahoo says data stolen from 1 billion accounts”… Meanwhile, you probably receive multiple phishing emails a day, get some telephone scams, concern about if your credit card has been compromised, or your online password has been cracked… All these are related to Cybersecurity.

You might think hackers are only interested in large corporations such as banks, insurance, telecom. However, the recent industry report shows 43 percent of all attacks targeted at small businesses.  Cyber crime is fairly prevalent among Canadian businesses, with 69% reporting some kind of attack within a twelve-month period.

This seminar is perfect for small business owners to quickly understand the key concepts of Cybersecurity and get excellent tips on how to protect your business. You will learn:

 

  • What is Cybersecurity?
  • Why should I care about Cybersecurity?
  • What are some common cyber attacks to your business?
  • 7 most important things you can do to immediately protect your business
  • Where can I get further help with Cybersecurity?
