Cyber Threats to You and Your Household are Real

Cyber Threats to You and Your Household are Real
Are you worried about becoming a victim of cyber-crime in Canada? You’re not alone. Unfortunately, cyber-crime is becoming increasingly prevalent and costly. According to the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre (CAFC), Canadians have lost more than $100 million due to online fraud, with 1 in 5 people falling victim to identity theft.

The consequences of online fraud can be severe.

Victims could suffer financial losses due to fraudulent credit card activity, unauthorized mortgages or loans, and even ransoms.

You also could lose valuable time resetting passwords, applying for new debit and credit cards, or replacing other forms of identity - in addition to the emotional toll of dealing with a breach for months or even years.

Cyber-crime could even impact your credit score and the costs of replacing compromised equipment, such as computers or cell phones, can be expensive. That’s why it’s important to protect yourself against cyber-crime.
