And this means that a lot of people in the nation need to learn best practices, because there are so many individuals online - more than 27.5 million who go online regularly, according to the Canadian Internet Registration Authority.
We’ve noticed that a number of users received phishing emails that pose as TekSavvy. These emails are not sent by or endorsed by TekSavvy in any way. Do not click on any links or provide any personal information. If you receive a suspicious-looking email, like the one below, delete it.

All companies and government offices work diligently to provide and deploy the best and most up-to-date security on the market. Canada's Justice Department operates no differently and, following some internal testing, they are taking a long look at employee email habits.
