A team that is ready is safe

In a world where digital is on the rise and information is shared and stored, there are more privacy incidents in the news now than ever. In 2017, the average cost of a privacy breach in Canada was nearly $6M, not including the cost of lost time, lost future business, and lost employee morale.

That’s a big financial risk to take. Instead, be sure that you are protected by taking the time and energy to get out in front – get ready!
