SURREY BOARD OF TRADE FOCUSES ON COUNTERING CYBER CRIME WITH POLICY AND EDUCATION – Survey Results to be released at Friday Surrey Hot Topic Series: Cyber Crime – March 31

“The Surrey Board of Trade’s  policy platform articulates that Cyber Crime is an emerging threat where the growing trends are alarming and threaten governments, businesses, and people in general,” says Anita Huberman, CEO, Surrey Board of Trade.

The Surrey Board of Trade will be looking to strategize on results relating to their government policy that looks to the federal and provincial governments to work collaboratively with stakeholders and business to:

1.   Strengthen and promote the Canadian Cyber Incident Response Centre (CCIRC) and the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre (CAFC)

·     as collectors of data including type and number of incidences;

·     to develop awareness and education strategies for businesses in a format that is easily accessed and understood, and

·     to pro-actively engage businesses and the public in awareness and education campaigns

2.   Ensure that the newly formed Electronic Crime Committee (ECC) includes business association representatives to assist with communications and outreach strategies to businesses
