Is your organization cyber-safe? 


When we talk about cybersecurity, it’s not about “whether you will be attacked”, but “when you will be attacked”. Many of us still do not properly understand the threats businesses face or the impact a cyber-attack would have. 

Cyber-attacks seem to become more common every day. News on organizations with large amounts of sensitive data falling victim attracted the public’s attention, including LifeLab, Desjardins, and CPA Canada. Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, the number of cyber-attacks increased dramatically, putting more pressure on the already stressed-out society.

On Tuesday, June 16th, CCPAA-ON is hosting a webinar featuring expert speaker Sandy Boucher from Grant Thornton LLP to go through the realities of cybersecurity risk beyond the myths and misconceptions:

  • Top cybersecurity risks facing Canadian businesses
  • Prepare your people, protect your critical information & infrastructure
  • Tips on how to make immediate improvements
  • Get started on the journey to improve your cybersecurity
