Proactive measures to mitigate cybersecurity risk remain critical to all Canadian businesses.

Please join members of our Cybersecurity group for a discussion of practical advice that draws directly from our experience drafting policies, breach coaching, liaising with regulators and litigating cases. Attendees will hear about best practices relating to incident response policies, relevant legislative updates at the federal and provincial levels, trends in the courts and practical day-to-day tips to enhance security, as well as results from the fourth edition of our own Canadian Cybersecurity Trends Study.


  • Important trends and changes to cyber threats facing Canadian businesses
  • Best practices for policies and procedures based on various industry trends, regulatory guidance, legislative updates and lessons learned from previous breaches
  • Relevant developments in Canadian federal and provincial law and the regulatory outlook for 2024
  • Trends in cybersecurity-related litigation
