Business Preparedness: Cyber-attacks and natural disasters
Program: 8:00 - 10:00 a.m.
Understanding threats and proactive measures
New and traditional risks facing businesses are rising steadily every year.
On average, businesses now face an average of 130 cyber security breaches each year — an increase of nearly 30% up from last year. Similarly, natural disasters such as fires and floods are impacting businesses more than ever before. Wildfires affected 15,000 businesses in British Columbia in 2017 alone.
This event on Business Preparedness will cover what you must know to safeguard against the virtual and physical risks threatening your business. Tangible insights and appropriate strategies will ensure business resilience and help enable long-term success.
