Cyber Security

Canada's approach to cyber security is about maximizing the benefits of the digital revolution for Canadian businesses and citizens in spite of a dynamic array of challenges.

Canada's Cyber Security Strategy is the Government's plan for protecting Canada from cyber threats. Together with other federal organizations, provinces, territories, private sector organizations and international partners, Public Safety Canada leads the Government's response to an increasing number of trends and challenges in a complex cyber security environment that continues to evolve – technologically, socially, and economically.

Public Safety Canada's Cyber Incident Response Centre (CCIRC) coordinates Canada's response to serious cyber security incidents. It works with partners, both inside and outside Canada, to take action on cyber threats and to protect the important systems Canadians rely on, such as banks and telecommunications service providers.
