Additionally, Mr. Huda will present a demo showing how attackers can easily exploit common vulnerabilities in SMOs and detail the latest cases of how attackers are stealing data and installing ransomware across the Canadian SMO landscape.
“Cyberattacks are increasing across North America, in particular targeting SMOs,” said Mr. Huda. “I am honored to speak at the CanadianSME Business Expo 2022, and to know that the event’s organizers not only recognize the importance of cybersecurity to businesses of all sizes, but share our vision of working together to take a stand against these attacks.”
Mr. Huda is a globally recognized risk and cybersecurity expert, the author of the best-selling book, “Next Level Cybersecurity,” and a frequent keynote speaker at industry conferences. He also helped author Canada’s National Cyber Security Standard, CAN / CIOSC 104, developed by the CIO Strategy Council. This Cyber Security Standard for SMOs is the first of its kind in the world.
The CanadianSME Business Expo 2022 is organized by CanadianSME, a leading podium for small and medium-sized enterprises across Canada. It is a two-day virtual event exclusively designed for Canadian small and mid-sized businesses and organizations.
Speakers at the event will include distinguished leaders and experts from a broad range of industries and government agencies. The opening keynote will be delivered by the Honourable Mary Ng, Canada’s Minister of International Trade, Export Promotion, Small Business and Economic Development.
CyberCatch has partnered with the CIO Strategy Council to provide a cybersecurity solution –CAN / CIOSC 104 Compliance Manager – that helps an SMO to implement all cybersecurity controls prescribed and then automatically tests the controls to enable continuous compliance, security and cyber risk mitigation cost-effectively.
“Cyberattacks pose an existential threat to SMOs,” said Mr. Huda. “SMOs are the growth engine of our economy; we must help them stay safe from cyber threats so they can succeed digitally. I’m looking forward to showing SMOs how they can stay one step ahead of the threats and thrive digitally at this year’s CanadianSME Expo.”
