About Cyber Security Canada

With the Digital Privacy Act now in full force, companies have obligations to their clients, employees, suppliers, directors and shareholders to protect the integrity and security of the intellectual property and private information the organization holds.

Our protection services secure your data by first assessing vulnerabilities and validating security controls through a comprehensive audit of your network infrastructure. This may include penetration testing or “ethical hacking.” 

Next, we analyze your security requirements and work with your IT staff to implement the appropriate security controls.

Even with the best security, there are still risks. Should you get hacked – a security or privacy breach – we provide the 24×7 response services and expertise to minimize business, financial and reputation loss.

We guide you through the steps to keep your company safe, secure, compliant and profitable.
