As COVID-19 continues to impact communities across Canada, cybercriminals are taking advantage of the crisis to commit fraud and cybercrime. The Canadian Center for Cyber Security reports that COVID-19 related phishing attempts are on the rise and networks are being exploited as more employees work from home. The good news is there are steps you can take to protect your employees and your business.
On October 22, join Grant Thornton's team of business risk experts as they outline how to assess your organization's fraud and cyber risk, and the training, processes and technology that will keep your business steps ahead of cybercriminals.
