From the recent Desjardins data breach to the ongoing ransomware crises facing many municipal governments, Canadians have been receiving regular reminders about threats to our cybersecurity. Inspired by conversations and research happening within the Conference Board of Canada’s Cyber Security Council, this webinar will examine three of the most pressing emerging threats which are ransomware, cryptojacking, and IoT attacks.

In this 60 minute webinar, learn more about these three emerging threats, what happened when Canadian organizations and individuals were targeted by those threats, and how they responded. The webinar will conclude with a strategic discussion, focused on how organizations can improve their cyber resilience in the face of these emerging concerns.
