Twice as many large Canadian companies as smaller ones report being impacted by data breaches in 2022.

Gaps in the ability of Canadian firms to prevent and detect cybersecurity incidents are due to weak cybersecurity and privacy compliance management.

Toronto, Canada, March 9, 2023 –  Sixteen percent: this surprisingly small percentage of Canadian companies have reported being impacted of cybersecurity breaches in 2022. What’s more, large organizations, with their larger budgets and greater risk maturity, reported double the breaches, at 37%. Is this indicative of missed opportunities to align on security management and privacy compliance?

• Multifactor access to key systems and applications
• End-to-end encryption for sensitive and confidential data
• Effective training for employees and management
• Investing in cyber technologies and innovations
• Enlisting certified expertise
