Mastercard Incorporated (NYSE: MA) and Digital Main Street report the expansion of their partnership to provide Canadian small businesses with additional resources, tools and practices to safeguard their operations against cyber-attacks.  This expansion will increase education programs across the country with a focus on increasing awareness amongst small businesses, youth and recent graduate.  Since the COVID-19 pandemic, the way Canadians bank, shop and work has changed and so has the strategies of cyber criminals.  “We are thrilled to be expanding our partnership with Mastercard,” said John Kiru, Executive Director of TABIA and Founder of Digital Main Street. “Since the inception of Digital Main Street, this collaboration has been critical in ensuring that we are bringing industry leading resources and opportunities to businesses across the country. In a time where small businesses are being increasingly targeted with cyber attacks, phishing scams and more – this will provide invaluable resources and support to ensure they are protected.”

“Small businesses can often be easier targets for cyber attacks because they have less security protection and fewer resources dedicated to cybersecurity compared to larger corporations. Despite their size, small businesses still have valuable data and it’s important that they have access to resources to shield themselves. Our expanded partnership with Digital Main Street will provide added tools and resources for small businesses so that they can focus on growing their operations knowing they are protected.”
