A Cyber Attack on Your Client Data Can be Devastating to Your Business

Hackers are always on the lookout for their next target. Whether the target is a large nationwide store chain or a small operation in Ontario it makes no difference to them; it’s the data they want. Not just any data – personal client data like addresses, birthdates, credit card numbers and more. With this information they can assume another person’s identity and take out loans in that person’s name. What person? Your client.

You’ve worked very hard to build your business into the reputable operation it is today. Clients have come to expect the best from you and your team. Imagine then the worst case – you walk into your office one day and find your computer systems not working, or you find your hardcopy files stolen. You quickly learn you’ve been hacked and all your clients are now at risk for Identity Theft. Your business is on the line.
