The Communications Security Establishment (CSE) and its Canadian Centre for Cyber Security (Cyber Centre) are pleased to announce today our partnership with Quebec to help enhance cyber security. This partnership with Quebec is another positive example of national security and intelligence agencies working together with our provincial partners to help keep Canadians and our businesses safe.
As Canada is one of the most connected countries in the world, a safe and secure cyber space is important for our continued security and prosperity. Through this partnership, federal and provincial centres of expertise will improve cyber security through collaborative information sharing on threat prediction, identification, and response on an as-needed basis, as well as by providing guidance on threat assessment and reporting.
The Cyber Centre are trusted experts in cyber security with a straightforward, focused mandate to collaborate with government partners, as well as the private sector, and academia. They provide targeted cyber security advice and guidance to protect the country’s most important cyber systems, while working side-by-side with provincial, territorial and municipal governments, and private sector partners, to solve Canada’s most complex cyber challenges.
Today’s announcement is another example of how we are working with different orders of government to make Canada more resistant to cyber threats.
