Shielding your digital self: How to navigate personal cybersecurity

As technology continues to advance, so do the tactics of cybercriminals looking to exploit vulnerabilities in the systems we rely on. And with the emergence of AI, cyberattacks are becoming increasingly sophisticated, placing even the most vigilant and well-trained individuals at risk.

So what should Canadians do to protect themselves?

The Logic’s reporter David Reevely joined Ritesh Kotak, tech and cybersecurity strategist; Laura Payton, manager, external strategic communications, Communications Security Establishment; and Ian Paterson, CEO, Plurilock, to discuss how to navigate the complex landscape of cybercrime. From understanding current threats to exploring practical solutions, this event—with opening remarks from Leigh Tynan, cybersecurity expert and director of TELUS online security—provided valuable insights for anyone concerned about data privacy and cybersecurity in the digital age.
