Importance of Cybersecurity

Today’s cyber-criminals are increasingly sophisticated and pose more significant threats to the economy than ever before. New safeguards are needed in order to protect businesses both small and large.

That’s where BBB Cybersecurity program comes in. We aim to help businesses better manage cyber-attacks and learn from industry best practices by:

  • Exploring the real and perceived risks of cyber-attacks

  • Offering education and awareness - cybersecurity is a complex topic for the business community

  • Building public trust in businesses’ cybersecurity standards
