Cyber Security

The Government of Canada is currently reviewing its approach to cyber security  to maximize the benefits of digital technologies for Canadians and businesses, and to advance its cyber security capability, resilience and innovation.

Canada's Cyber Security Strategy outlines how the Government of Canada is working with all levels of government, private sector organizations and international partners to strengthen cyber security in Canada. It is focused on three pillars: securing Government systems, partnering to secure vital cyber systems outside the federal Government and helping Canadians to be secure online.

Get Cyber Safe provides information on cyber security to help Canadians protect themselves, their families, and their small and medium businesses online. Learn more about the tools and tips to help you stay cyber safe.

Public Safety Canada’s Cyber Incident Response Centre 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.

The Cyber Security Cooperation Program supports projects through grants and contributions to improve the security of Canada's vital cyber systems. Find out if you qualify and how to apply.

Cyber Security Awareness Month is an internationally recognized campaign held each October to promote cyber security and inform Canadians on how to be more secure online.
