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.

"We, women in business are mothers, wives, even grand-parents. We run a compnay, while acting as mothers and taking care of a family. It is very important to have an award ceremony to recognize women in business. It was a great evening and it is nice to get out, relax and treat ourselves."
- Nadine Levesque
