Cybercrime – The Risks and Best Practices for Protecting Your Business

Malware. Network Scanning. Man in the Middle. Phishing. DNS Spoofing. Trojan Horses. These are just a few examples of cyber-attacks carried out against small and mid-sized Canadian businesses every day.

We all hear the stories and know there are risks. But how big is the threat and what steps can a business take that can truly reduce the chances of being a victim of cybercrime? In this Beyond the Numbers presentation, GGFL’s Natalie Evans and guest Matt Holland, Founder, Chief Executive Officer and Chief Technology Officer of Ottawa-based Field Effect discuss:

  1. How different attacks work and what the biggest risks are for small and mid-sized businesses
  2. The essential elements of an Incident Response Plan
  3. The actions your company can take to reduce risk

Viewers of this session will gain an understanding of the risks they face and the best practices for integrating and improving your staff training, processes, and technology to prevent cybercrimes from occurring, and how to respond effectively if a breach does take place.
