Tammy Allen, Trend Micro SMB Sales Manager, sat down with Channel Buzz to discuss the challenges that a unique market like Canada poses for an organization like Trend Micro and how the company has done a great job adapting to the ever-evolving landscape when it comes to securing endpoints and meeting its partners’ needs.
Global cybersecurity provider Trend Micro has announced the launch of its latest global Cyber Risk Index (CRI) for the second half of 2022. According to the results, the overall global cyber-risk levels have improved from “elevated” to “moderate” for the first time. While North America and Canada still stand at an elevated risk level, Canada received a score of -0.03, which shows an improvement compared to the first half of the year (-0.30). Although Canada has steadily shown improvement year after year, there is still work to be done. According to Jon Clay, VP of threat intelligence at Trend Micro, "Canadian organizations must continue to take steps to improve their cyber-preparedness so they can stay ahead of the ever-evolving threats, especially since most anticipate a breach within the next year."
