Innovating for a Secure Business Future

Innovating for a Secure Business Future

The landscape for businesses has been spun on its head, bringing with it new requirements for cybersecurity. Cisco data shows that 77% of Canadian companies expect a cybersecurity incident to disrupt their business in the next two years, but only 9% are ready to defend against cyber threats. Small businesses are not immune which means cybersecurity isn’t just a nice-to-have. So, what’s the best advice for SMBs for 2024? Make cybersecurity a priority.  

In today’s business environment, significant thought and effort needs to be given to how to protect employees and customers, devices, network, data, and applications that operate dynamically. While it can seem overwhelming for small businesses to take on, keeping things simple with integrated platforms to achieve security resilience while reducing complexity can make all the difference. 

Our small and medium business landscape in Canada is vibrant and has a tremendous impact on our communities, our country and the world. By investing in tools that build reliance, enable innovation and support business outcomes, we can make sure that our small business community can continue to grow and thrive.
