About this Talk

It is an inevitability that today’s operating environment for public libraries carries with it the risk of falling victim to cybercrime, which is constantly evolving in sophistication and creativity. From simple phishing to identity theft and ransomware, the costs of cybercrime can be significant in terms of disruption to operations, as well as financial and reputational repercussions.

This session is intended for a non-technical audience, and focuses on library administrators, managers, and directors; it aims to provide an overview of how the management and mitigation of cybersecurity risk can be understood and undertaken from Canadian and public library contexts. Its emphasis is not preventive but preparatory and remedial.
