McAfee Canada Launches The State of Consumer and Enterprise Security in Canada Website

We received this news from McAfee Canada today: a new website for writers looking for statistical information on cyber security in Canada. It’s called the The State of Consumer and Enterprise Security in Canada and looks quite interesting.

McAfee Canada today launched a new website called The State of Consumer and Enterprise Security in Canada (, in order to provide a one-stop shop for writers looking for information on a variety of trends and issues affecting and shaping the Canadian security landscape. McAfee regularly conducts industry studies, develops threats report and commissions numerous surveys to help ensure businesses, governments and consumers are kept up-to-date on the ever-evolving threat landscape.

Just how protected are Canadians? What are their online behaviours and attitudes towards PC health? How do mobile devices and the BYOD trend affect security protocol in the workplace? What does the threat landscape currently look like for consumers and enterprises? Which trends are expected to pick up, and what are security experts predicting for the rest of the year?

Did you know that an overwhelming 83 per cent of Canadians have at least some security concerns with surfing the Web? Or that Canadian consumers value their digital assets (personal photos, entertainment files, contacts) at more than $48,000? Did you know that 98 per cent of IT decision-makers across the three levels of Canada’s public sector have been exposed to some sort of direct security threat/challenge within the past 12 months?

Answers to all of these questions, and more, can be found on the website, where you’ll also gain access to McAfee’s most recent surveys and reports, as well as information from other leading research firms and associations.

Feel free to check out the McAfee Canada resource site for security information, statistics, story ideas, and access to published McAfee surveys and studies. As always, McAfee spokespersons are available for comment and discussion about consumer- and enterprise-related security topics. Just email or call 416-961-5595, and we’d be more than happy to help you out.
