October is Cyber Security Awareness Month

October kicks off Cyber Security Awareness Month, an internationally recognized campaign to inform Canadian individuals and businesses about the importance of cyber security. Read on to learn about how the risks of cyber breaches can impact your business and how Gillons can help.

The 2019 Canadian Internet Registration Authority (CIRA) Cybersecurity Survey

According to the 2019 Cybersecurity Survey conducted by CIRA:

  • 71 % of organizations reported experiencing at least one cyber-attack that impacted the organization in some way, including time and resources, out of pocket expenses, and paying ransom.
  • Among those businesses that were victimized by a cyber-attack, 13% indicated the attack damaged their reputation.
  • A mere 19% of Canadians would continue to do business with an organization if their personal data were exposed in a cyber- attack.
  • Only 25% of organizations use cyber security insurance.

At Gillons we have insurance solutions providing protection for a wide range of cyber risks.
