The Canadian Program for Cybersecurity Certification (CPCSC)

Our organization is in the process of becoming an accredited certification body for the Canadian Program for Cybersecurity Certificaton (CPCSC) – CMMC 2. In addition to our certification efforts, we will also be a training provider for the CPCSC. Contact us today to learn how we can currently help with CMMC Level 2 Compliance.

We are excited to announce our involvement with the Canadian Program for Cybersecurity Certification (CPCSC), a groundbreaking initiative aimed at bolstering the cybersecurity posture of suppliers working on Government of Canada defence contracts. As cybersecurity threats continue to evolve, the need for robust cybersecurity measures has never been more critical. The CPCSC represents a significant step forward in protecting networks, systems, and applications from malicious cyber activities, ensuring the resilience and security of Canada’s defence supply chain.

Level 1

Involves an annual cybersecurity self-assessment.

Level 2

Requires external cybersecurity assessments conducted by an accredited certification body. (That will be us!)

Level 3

Requires cyber security assessments be conducted by the Department of National Defence.

Benefits of The Canadian Program for Cybersecurity Certification (CPCSC)

The CPCSC offers numerous benefits for both Canada and its suppliers. For Canada, the program enhances national security by safeguarding critical defence supply chains against cyber threats. For suppliers, certification under the CPCSC not only demonstrates a commitment to cybersecurity but also opens doors to new opportunities within the defence sector.

Furthermore, the program encourages international standardization, boosting consumer trust in the digital economy and enhancing the global competitiveness of Canadian suppliers.

The Canadian Program for Cyber Security Certification (CPCSC) will align closely with the U.S. Department of Defence’s Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification Version 2 (CMMC 2), facilitating a unique “cyber reciprocity” between Canada and the U.S.

Our team is dedicated to providing the highest level of service and expertise to help suppliers meet and surpass the cybersecurity challenges of today and tomorrow. Together, we can build a more secure and resilient defence sector for Canada.
