As cyber threats continue to grow in frequency and sophistication, and the threat landscape broadens as the Internet of Things comes online, it’s become clear that cyber threats pose one of the most fundamental threats to Canadian national security, economic stability, and the privacy of its citizens. Whether they be ransomware attacks, data breaches, thefts of intellectual property, or more destructive activity that targets industrial control systems with physical consequences to critical infrastructure, Canadian government and businesses are being targeted at a rapid pace.

Join us for this intensive workshop with two leading experts who are engaged on the front lines of the cybersecurity problem. We will discuss the nature of the attacks today, how they are conducted, cybersecurity risks and vulnerabilities, and how new technologies will change the threat landscape.  This operational discussion will cover cyber threat intelligence and cyber information sharing.
