Cybersecurity threats for your business
An increasing number of businesses are being exposed to cybercrime, and no business is too small to be noticed by criminals. Throughout 2020 and 2021, cyberattacks on small- and medium-sized businesses (SMBs), including their remote workers, have increased.¹
A Canadian study found that more than 85% of Canadian businesses reported experiencing at least one cyberattack in 2021.² Malware, ransomware, hacking, phishing attempts, spyware and viruses are some of the many threats to protect your business from. Plus, your SMB is a prime target for cybercriminals because it has more digital assets than the average consumers have, but less sophisticated cyber defenses than large companies. So, how do you keep your business safe from cyberattacks?
