Cybersecurity

New Brunswick is the epicentre of Canada's cybersecurity industry and a hotbed of innovation for world-leading solutions and technologies.

Building a safer future

The cybersecurity industry is more and more vital as our world becomes increasingly digital. But can it grow fast enough to meet the need? The global cybersecurity vacancy rate is expected to be 1.8 million by 2022. (Source: 2017 Global Information Security Workforce Study)

Through CyberNB, New Brunswick is actively supporting the development of a world-class cybersecurity ecosystem with a strong talent pipeline.

A cybersecurity pioneer

Thanks to the talent clustered around the University of New Brunswick’s ground-breaking computer science program, the province has an established and thriving cybersecurity industry. Our graduates have helped build some of the industry’s most successful companies and continue to attract attention from organizations seeking to go where the talent is.

We are strengthening the industry even more through CyberNB, an initiative that brings government, business, and academia together to enrich the cybersecurity talent pipeline, protect critical infrastructure, support startups and new product development, and facilitate cybersecurity R&D.

Through Cyber Essentials Canada, organizations can obtain certification to protect against online threats and to monitor the cyber hygiene of their supply chain.
