In collaboration with our partners, we connect Canada’s research and education sector to world-class cybersecurity initiatives.

Canada’s research and education sector is connected – both physically, through the National Research and Education Network (NREN), and through the collaborative nature of learning and discovery. But every connected device and organization is susceptible to cyber threats.

Given our interconnectedness, we’re only as strong as our weakest link.

When it comes to securing the whole sector, it’s critical to strengthen the capacity of every institution and coordinate efforts that are underway at every level: from apps and devices to campus networks and NREN infrastructure.

Working with our provincial and territorial NREN partners and other partner organizations that serve Canada’s research and education sector, we are using a collaborative national approach to mitigate risks across the landscape.

We are working to align and coordinate efforts across the sector and to fund initiatives that enhance cybersecurity capabilities.

Built by the community, for the community…we’re proud to launch the Cybersecurity Initiatives Program.
