Protecting the marketplace

A multi-sector policy discussion

Cyber-crime has become one of the world’s most complex public policy challenges. Each year, Canadian businesses and consumers become victims of malicious and costly online attacks. From phishing and malware to fraud and identity theft, cybercrime now represents a global challenge that requires new thinking and innovative partnerships.

On March 7, the Public Policy Forum, in partnership with TD Bank and with support from Public Safety Canada, will convene government, business, and academic leaders to explore the most pressing cybersecurity challenges facing our country. This discussion will examine the gaps in Canada’s cyber policies and practices, and identify the multi-sector partnerships that are needed to address them. By bringing together stakeholders from across sectors it is our objective to identify how leaders can better work together to secure Canada’s online marketplace. This roundtable will also provide participants with the opportunity to share their insights with the Government of Canada at a time when it is developing a new cybersecurity strategy.

Thank you to our partner:  

And to Public Safety Canada for providing funding through the Cyber Security Cooperation Program.
