Business Support Series

The Business Support Webinar Series will explore timely topics with industry experts to provide key insights and answers on the best ways to succeed as a business. Hosted by the Halifax Chamber of Commerce, this series will feature a wide range of topics on how to survive and thrive.


Cyber risks have risen significantly during the COVID-19 pandemic as online criminals continue to take advantage of remote work vulnerabilities. This topical 60-minute webinar will provide participants with an update on the ever-changing data privacy threats impacting Canadian businesses and the potential regulatory shifts on the horizon.

The presentation will then address a scenario involving a ransomware 2.0 attack, with the goal of providing participants with practical tips on the types of policies to have in place before a data incident, the steps required to deal with a cybersecurity breach, and the various liability concerns and notification requirements that may arise.

Three takeaways from this webinar:

  • Better appreciating current cybersecurity risks.
  • Understanding legal obligations in the event of a breach.
  • Learning practical steps to limit liability for member organizations.
