CYBERSECURE CANADA READINESS

CYBERSECURE CANADA READINESS

CyberSecure Canada is a federal cyber certification program that aims to raise the cyber security baseline among small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in Canada, increase consumer confidence in the digital economy, promote international standardization and better positions SMEs to compete globally. Certification requires Canadian SMEs to implement the baseline security controls developed by the Canadian Centre for Cyber Security. The security controls aim to give SMEs the greatest amount of protection with the least amount of burden. The CyberSecure Canada certification mark will give certified businesses official recognition by the federal government for demonstrating their compliance to the baseline security controls. The certification mark provides an easy way for customers, investors, partners and suppliers to know that a business has decreased their cyber risk.
