New Statistics Canada Report on the Impact of Cybercrime on Canadian Businesses – Register Today for Exclusive Live Video Webcast

On Thursday, October 18, at 11:00 a.m. EST, join a live video webcast featuring Mohammad Lari, Economist, with Statistics Canada’s Economist, Investment, Science and Technology Division, as he is interviewed by CATAAlliance Chief Business Officer, Kevin Wennekes, on the 2017 Canadian Survey of Cyber Security and Cybercrime report being publicly released that same day.

This webcast will feature the sharing of a formal PowerPoint presentation on the results followed by a live Q&A.

While high-profile cyber security incidents affecting large enterprises are frequently covered in the media, little is known of how cyber security risks affect the overall business population in Canada. Participants in this discussion will explore the results from the 2017 Canadian Survey of Cyber Security and Cybercrime, which collected information on the types of cyber security measures businesses employ, the practices they undertake to identify security risks, the types of cyber security incidents they faced in 2017, their incident reporting practice, and the costs associated with preventing, detecting and recovering from cybercrime.

A copy of the original questionnaire can be found at: http://www23.statcan.gc.ca/imdb/p2SV.pl?Function=getSurvey&SDDS=5244
