Time to get Cyber Safe for October of 2022

There are several excellent resources available to help make sure you stay open for business and not open to a ransomware attack.

With the average cost of a data breach reaching $7 million for Canadian firms according to an IBM study released in July 2022 it is becoming more important for SMOs to improve their cybersecurity posture, especially if they are looking to obtain a Cyber-insurance policy.

The Government of Canada has a guide to help with their Get Cyber Safe Guide for Small and Medium Businesses.

Also the Canadian Center for Cyber Security has their Top measures to enhance cyber security for small and medium organizations  that summarizes the 13 security control categories, including training your employees to recognize cyber threats.

The Insurance Bureau of Canada has also recently setup their Cyber Savvy Challenge website with many good resources available.

Stay safe out there and enjoy the fall colours.
