Two-thirds of Canadian companies say they are losing cyber war

This is according to the findings of a new study from Scalar Decisions Inc. of more than 650 Canadian IT and security workers.

The 2017 Scalar Security Study commissioned by Scalar and independently by Ponemon Institute showed that confidence continues to decline among Canadian organizations for the third year in a row as fewer believe they are winning the quickly-evolving war on security.

The average number of reported cyber-attacks on Canadian organizations rose to an average of 44 attacks per year, up nearly 30% since the initial survey in 2014.
