The International Cyber Security Protection Alliance (ICSPA) reported that 69% of Canadian businesses experienced a cybersecurity incident in 2014, and a quarter of these cyber-attacks had a significant impact on their organization. Cyber attacks are not a new phenomenon, yet despite advancements in protection, many organizations are still underprepared to deal with increasingly complex cyber threats.

Mitigating the threat of cyberattacks is difficult, and equipping IT department with all the latest hardware and software security solutions is simply not enough. By building a strong cybersecurity governance framework, managers and board members are encouraged to think more holistically about solutions, and ensure that all employees play a collective role in promoting cybersecurity. A robust framework will also create processes for identifying breaches and implementing fixes, something that’s becoming increasingly difficult with each new threat. So how prepared is your organization?
