Strengthening the Sector Together: Why Collaboration is Key to Tackle Cybersecurity Threats (E/SI)

April 24, 2023 | 8:00 am - 9:00 am

Stream: Ensuring Safety, Security and Well-being
Location: 521

Threats from cyber actors are growing at an extraordinary rate, and institutions can’t tackle the problem on their own. This session will focus on the importance of sharing threat intelligence based on real attacks that targeted the sector over the past year, and highlight challenges and opportunities at the institutional, provincial, and federal level. We have an opportunity to strengthen security by working together – at all levels – through expanding how we share threat information and learnings. Participants will be invited to share ideas or challenges they’ve faced in the cybersecurity landscape and provide feedback to help inform future services delivered through the emerging federated security operations centre.
