As more employees work from home due to COVID-19, cyber attacks on manufacturing companies have increased leading to major data breaches, reputational damages and financial losses. According to a 2020 CIRA (Canadian Internet Registration Authority) survey, 25% of organizations surveyed experienced a breach of customer and/or employee data last year. Also a report by Emsisoft estimated that ransomware costs Canadian companies as much as $2.3 billion last year.
To help manufacturers mitigate cybersecurity risks, the City of Vaughan’s Economic and Cultural Development Department has partnered with CyberHunter, a specialized cyber security consulting firm to host a roundtable discussion with Vaughan manufacturers on Monday, November 15th, 2021 from 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM.
