Canada, with the third most cyber attacks in the world in 2018, is said to be a prime target for breaches in 2019 according to the Canadian Center for Cyber Security.  As treasury practitioners, taking preventative measures to protect your organizations against malicious online activity has now become a core responsibility for your roles. 

Join TMAC Toronto and a panel of senior cyber professionals as we outline the evolving cyber landscape, emerging threats (including ransomware) and some of the key best-practices that financial practitioners can apply to mitigate these growing risks.  We will also discuss how you can formalize procedures and accelerate the speed to react to a cyber event, should one occur within your company.
