- Almost 60% of Canadian companies subject to cybersecurity attacks were targeted by phishing – do you know it when you see it?
- According to Statista, 30% of all Canadian companies suffer up to 20 cyberattacks in a 12-month period.
- A cybersecurity plan can help your organization mitigate severe impacts from core business downtime to permanent data loss, intellectual property theft, privacy breaches, reputational damage, and expensive recovery costs.
