CIRA, the non-profit that runs the .CA web domain, is providing a hands-off service for Surrey Board of Trade members, where you register your employees for year-round cybersecurity training.
It is now more important than ever to remain vigilant against phishing scams and other malicious cyber attacks. No business is too small to be targeted by cyberattacks, and the impact can be devastating to your business, such as your IT systems being locked or your financial information being stolen.
Most data breaches start with employees accidentally clicking on bad emails, but the solution is pretty straightforward: cybersecurity awareness training. Think of it like WHMIS training, but for the dangers of the internet.
All you have to do is register and add your staff. A CIRA representative will help you understand your cyber risks and how this service works.
