Title:  Tackling Cyber Risk: Continuous Improvement Mindset


Cyber Security is a business risk that cannot be ignored any longer. Cyber- crime is on the rise and businesses of all sizes are increasingly becoming the target of cyber criminals and hackers. Cyber security breaches in Canada cost companies on average $5 million dollars in direct and indirect expenses. Many companies would not be able to withstand such a financial hit.


There is hope however, that companies that have prepared and undertaken basic precautions will be better able to manage the risks and damages from cyber-attacks. Cyber security provides a distinct competitive advantage over those that have not developed any precautions or strategies.


Effective cyber security isn’t achieved overnight. Effective security must be seen as a journey embracing a continuous improvement mindset. Without effective security true business continuity can never be reached. This sessions will explore that cyber security is much more than just a technical solution. A robust risk management approach focusing on core controls that embody the 80/20 Principle: taking just a small portion of all the security actions an organization could possibly take, yielding a very large percentage of the benefit of taking all those possible actions. It is all about the 3Rs – rapid risk reduction. This mindset enables organizations to apply the principles and best practices of risk management to improving the security and resilience of IT infrastructure without overspending on technology.


So many organizations do cyber security wrong. By following a “quality” risk management approach this will provide the organization with the necessary robustness and structure to today’s constantly changing cybersecurity landscape by assembling standards, guidelines, and practices that are working effectively in industry today.


Company Background

Our mission is to help businesses build protection around all the critical points in their organization so that their operations can continue to run smoothly and securely. Our approach is to begin at the top of the organization – The Executive Leadership Team and the Board of Directors. We help directors & officers and corporate executives fulfill their fiduciary duties to provide thoughtful, well-planned cyber security oversight. If corporate leadership is grounded in proactive cyber security, it not only increases the organization’s cyber security program, it also gives them a compelling brand narrative which provides a more solid legal and regulatory defense.


On the front end of the relationship with our clients, we are the trusted outside cyber security advisor who brings leadership experience into their organization from day one. Once we can identify the gaps in their security program and assess their needs, we can make recommendations accordingly. We serve clients across all industry verticals including but not limited to: financial services, healthcare, manufacturing, logistics, and retail.
