Launched on 1 October 2018 as part of the Communications Security Establishment (CSE), the Canadian Centre for Cyber Security (Cyber Centre) is a new organization but one with a rich history. The Cyber Centre brings operational security experts from across the Government of Canada under one roof. In line with the National Cyber Security Strategy, the launch of the Cyber Centre represents a shift to a more unified approach to cyber security in Canada.
We are trusted experts in cyber security with a straightforward, focused mandate to collaborate with government, the private sector, and academia. We are builders, creators, developers, researchers and scientists. We work to make Canada a safer place to be online.
We Help Keep Canada and Canadians Safe in Cyberspace by:
Being a clear, trusted source of relevant cyber security information for Canadians, Canadian businesses and critical infrastructure owners and operators.
Providing targeted cyber security advice and guidance to protect the country’s most important cyber systems.
Developing and sharing our specialized cyber defence technology and knowledge, helping to improve cyber security for all Canadians.
Defending cyber systems, including Government of Canada networks, by developing and deploying sophisticated cyber defence tools and technology.
Leading the Government’s operational response during cyber events by using our expertise and access to provide information immediately useful for managing incidents.
Cyber defence is a team sport. Our unique advantage helps make Canada more resistant to cyber threats and more resilient during and after cyber events.
