TORONTO - Feb. 28, 2023 - PRLog -- Over the past 18 months, Canadian companies have adopted cyber clauses within their business insurance at a rapid pace, leading to 84% adoption across all business sectors. Today, that increase has stopped due to the number of companies that fail to qualify for one or more of the following insurance requirements:

1. Effective employee training in privacy and security awareness
2. Multifactor authentication for key systems and applications
3. Breach response and incident management

"The theme this year revolves around accountability" said Claudiu Popa, President of Managed Privacy Canada (MPC) and Datarisk Canada. "With fresh new legislation in place in the form of Bill 64/Loi 25 and PIPEDA/CPPA, everyone needs a qualified privacy and security manager to deal with potential cyber incidents and breach reporting".

Accounting firms, law firms and other trusted advisors are finding the Datarisk and MPC portals ideal tools for managing cybersecurity and privacy projects including:

1. Annual risk assessments
2. Automatic scheduling
3. Cybersecurity and Privacy Incident response Table Top Exercises (TTX)
