Cyber Security Liability

Small to mid size organizations are increasing relying on networks, cloud technology and computing systems to operate business in Canada. However, this may expose a company to new and emerging cyber threats. Media attention towards cyber breaches has increased significantly over the past five years focusing the importance of network, data security and privacy systems and risk transfer to protect branding and reputation. It is not a matter of if, but when your business will be a target of hackers, trojans, ransom ware or data distribution of private and confidential information.

A data breach to your organization could be financially damaging including costs related to first and third party costs, branding and reputation damage, legal costs and notification expenses to your customers.
