Security
What’s the biggest technology security problem that Canadian entrepreneurs face?

If you said computer hackers, guess again. The biggest problems by far come from a company’s own employees. The good news: They’re usually not doing it on purpose.

Most of the security breaches involve accidents: an employee mistakenly emailing confidential client information outside the company; a cashier leaving a customer’s credit card information on a publicly viewable computer screen; or a manager inadvertently deleting important files.

One of the most common breaches: accidentally downloading malware — those nasty computer viruses and Trojan horses that can cause mayhem in your computer network. Also very common: neglecting to back up data regularly.

 “When I met the NB Association of CBDC’s they were willing to help and give advice, that’s when I really felt like I had made the choice by opening this business in New Brunswick. You just don’t get that attention in bigger cities.” In Toronto for example there may not have been an economic development agency that is eager for you to open your own business.
