Event summary produced by The Globe and Mail Events team. The Globe’s editorial department was not involved.

In the past year and a half, the risk of experiencing a cybersecurity breach as a business has increased exponentially due to a rapid increase in the number of remote workers. In the wrong hands, the “gold mine” of employee information, trade secrets and customer data that most companies now collect can turn into a massive financial burden if it becomes exposed. To help businesses make sense of this rapidly changing digital environment, The Globe and Mail gathered a group of experts to discuss how organizations can avoid internal data mismanagement and external exposure. The conversation was hosted by Dawn Calleja, Editor of Report on Business magazine, and included Brad Stocking, an Associate Partner with the cloud and infrastructure security team at IBM Canada; Sumit Bhatia, Director of Innovation and Policy for the Rogers Cybersecurity Catalyst at Ryerson University; Ulrike Bahr-Gedalia, Senior Director of the digital economy, technology and innovation portfolios at the Canadian Chamber of Commerce; and Finning Canada’s Chief Information and Security Officer, Catherine Mendonsa.
