The Rural Edge: Protecting Your Business From Cyber Security Threats
November 12, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am
Did you know there are more than one million cyber attacks in Canada every day? It’s believed that more than 95% of data breaches are due to human error, while 60% of small businesses victimized by a cyber attack permanently close within six months. These facts, among many others, are why you should educate yourself and your staff on identifying cyber security threats. Doing so is the best cyber security investment for your business, as these threats will always be a concern, but you can minimize risk through knowledge and training.
You’ve likely heard stories of organizations suffering cyber attacks, thinking your business would never be in that situation, but it can happen to anyone. Your awareness of cyber security threats is crucial to operating your business in the digital age, with criminals continually developing new methods of stealing data and digital information. Real-world examples include phishing attacks, money transfer requests, and other intricate ways of tricking business owners into giving confidential information to the wrong hands.
Presented by Todd Cox, Chief Technology Officer of Attache Group Inc., this edition of The Rural Edge webinar series will address the following:
- A discussion on the current landscape of cyber security threats.
- The common threats such as phishing, wire transfer requests, links, attachments, mobile device concerns, and fake websites.
- How to spot harmful content, what to do if a cyber attack occurs, and how to obtain ongoing training and support.
