Bringing your business online is an exciting time and can present you with an incredible array of new growth opportunities; however, selling online comes with its own set of risks.
Digitizing a business in today’s age likely means that you’ll be collecting and storing personal and confidential information.
Whether you’re using Google Analytics or maintaining an e-commerce store, there are countless ways that online businesses collect personal information and as business owners, you are responsible for the safety and security of that data.
With dozens of privacy laws in Canada and around the world that could potentially apply to your business, it can be a complicated environment to navigate.
Furthermore, data breaches are occurring with an increased frequency and small businesses are a common target accounting for more than 1/3 of all data breaches. Even for small businesses these data breaches can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars and can be devastating to your company.
In this webinar, we’ll walk you through the essentials of data privacy protection and what you need to focus on as a small Canadian business emerging into an online sales environment.
Building a privacy program can feel overwhelming, but it could be the tool you need to ensure your business is setup for long-term success in an online world.
