In today’s world, cyber-security is a persistent and large-scale business risk.

Information on the information technology (IT) security practices of Canadian companies, however, has always been challenging to find, largely due to limited legislative guidance and the natural tendency of small and medium-sized (SME) organizations to control their own information.

To bridge this informational gap, Chartered Professional Accountants of Canada (CPA Canada) commissioned Nielsen to conduct a study called Information Security for Small and Medium Enterprises. The results provide revealing insights into the state of data protection across a diversity of sectors, and how businesses like yours manage IT security and the risk of associated data breaches.

Learn about:

  • how companies deal with information risk
  • the security concerns of companies
  • managing security risks
  • working with your IT and security providers to save your business
