    Are You a Sitting Duck

    You, and your small business, are under attack. Right now, extremely dangerous and well-funded cybercrime rings in China, Russia and the Ukraine are using sophisticated software systems to hack into thousands of small businesses like yours to steal credit cards, client information, and swindle money directly out of your bank account.
    Don’t think you’re in danger because you’re “small” and not a big target like a Capital One or Desjardins? Think again. Malware is costing the economy more each year, quadrupling since 2015. New threats like cryptojacking are on the rise, stealing your CPU power itself. 43% of all these cyber-attacks are aimed squarely at small businesses. You may not have heard about them before because it was kept quiet for fear of attracting bad PR, lawsuits, data-breach fines, and out of sheer embarrassment. Now that it’s mandatory to report all data breaches you’ll be seeing a lot more; since becoming mandatory, breach report volumes went up by almost 500%.

    In fact the Herjavec Group reports that in 2019 a business falls victim to a ransomware attack every 14 seconds – and the likelihood of experiencing a data breach has increased by 31% in the last two years, as more businesses utilize cloud computing, mobile devices and store more information online. Quite simply, most small businesses are low-hanging fruit to hackers due to their lack of adequate security systems.

    As an IT support company that works day and night to protect our clients from these attacks – and which sees, on a regular basis, hardworking Canadian entrepreneurs like you being financially devastated by these lawless scumbags – I am determined to WARN as many businesses as possible of the VERY REAL threats facing their organization so they have a chance to protect themselves and everything they’ve worked so hard to achieve.
