TORONTO – As small businesses across Canada cope with ongoing social distancing requirements, many are quickly moving their activities online and facing greater exposure to cyber threats.
To help small businesses protect their operations, Mastercard announced that RiskRecon, a Mastercard company, is providing Canadian small businesses free cybersecurity assessments through Dec. 31, 2020.
The RiskRecon cyberhealth assessment helps businesses identify and address potential vulnerabilities in their systems. By monitoring and catching vulnerabilities early, it enables small businesses to stay ahead of cyber criminals so they can focus on growing their business, instead of fighting costly cyber-attacks.
“Small businesses are the lifeblood of our economy and now, more than ever, it’s vital that they be protected,” said Sue Hutchison, senior vice-president of Product, Digital and New Payments for Mastercard in Canada, in a prepared statement. “Mastercard has a proud history of supporting small businesses in Canada and we’re building on that by providing free access to the resources small businesses need to safeguard their systems now, and for the future.”
With free access to RiskRecon’s ‘My Cyber Risk’ service and portal, small businesses will receive continuous cyberhealth assessments along with actionable recommendations for how to strengthen their cybersecurity posture.
