Montreal-Based Cybersecurity Collective Develops New Hack Detection App
Hikvision Offers Cybersecurity Tips to Reduce Security Concerns
Three financial institutions—Desjardins Group, National Bank of Canada and Deloitte—and engineering firm RHEA Group, banded together to create the new cybersecurity collective and non-profit, CyberEco, and collectively developed an app to prevent hacks, data theft and security breaches, according to an article in Canadian Security magazine.
From the article: “Cyberattacks in Canada and around the world are a growing threat. The Bank of Montreal and the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce both suffered data breaches last May. In late 2017 Equifax announced that a massive data breach compromised the personal information and credit card details of 143 million Americans and 100,000 Canadians.”
The hack detection app is named “Protection,” and is designed to “help users detect security breaches and scam attempts in their emails, texts and other apps, as well as give tips to prevent future hacks,” according to Canadian Security.
Deloitte managing partner, Marc Perron, stated that as attempts to hack systems increase, so has demand for cybersecurity services. "Like all companies, we are being attacked," he said, in the article.
Hikvision has scaled cybersecurity resources for integrator partners that install its security cameras, DVRs, and NVRs. Initiatives include the online Cybersecurity Center and dedicated cybersecurity hotline. The company has also published a series of cybersecurity blogs, designed to minimize security concerns for partners. View more here.
