(The Hosting News) – We all know cyber-attacks have had an increased presence in today’s interconnected world, however cybersecurity isn’t an issue faced strictly by large firms. PwC’s recent survey of Canadian private companies found that 88% of firms agreed or strongly agreed that cybersecurity is an important issue for their organization. However, firms are more in the dark about what they need to do, where their vulnerabilities lie and what to do about them.
“We’re not a target.”
Just because a company does not accept credit card payments or store personal information, does not mean they will be immune to a cyberattack. Attacks are also on health information, SINs and employee lists, as information brokers in the black market place increased value on personal information.
Jason Green, Director in PwC’s Cyber Resilience team, comments, “Today’s cybercriminals often target companies that have been slower to invest in security as a platform to launch an attack on other organizations.”
