Cybersecurity Awareness Month: Protect Your Business

Cyber-attacks can have devastating financial and reputational effects on any business. Ponemon Institute LLC’s 2015 Cost of Data Breach Study: Canada indicates that the average cost of a data breach in Canada is C$5.32-million.

As part of Cybersecurity Awareness Month, we are featuring a series of relevant content for your business and legal needs on Blakes Business Class. Attached is an infographic on cyber defences and a risk mitigation checklist that may be helpful in assessing your company’s preparedness for a data breach.
