Business Survey: Is Your Business Affected by Ransomeware Attacks?


We would like to inform our members about a study being conducted by the International CyberCrime Research Centre in the School of Criminology at Simon Fraser University. The objectives of this study are to investigate the prevalence of ransomware attacks against businesses in British Columbia, and to identify possible ways to prevent and/or mitigate such attacks. It should only take you 20-25 minutes to complete this anonymous online survey. We would encourage all owners/managers of B.C.-based businesses and professional firms to complete the online survey, regardless of whether or not they have been victimized by ransomware, as the researchers are hoping to obtain as broad and representative a sample as possible. Please note that for reasons of representativeness, only ONE person from your business or firm should complete this survey. Your participation in the survey would be greatly appreciated.
