Canada's Cyber Security Industry: Overview

Canada has a lot to offer in the realm of cyber security with Canadian businesses continuously moving to adopt the most modern digital technologies in the rapidly evolving cyber security landscape. Canada’s key cyber security strengths include cryptography and encryption, mobile authentication, biometrics, surveillance, tracking and sensors.

Canada also has three of the world’s best laboratories authorized to evaluate and certify security products including CGI Group’s IT Security Test and Evaluation Facility, DOMUS IT Security Laboratory, and EWA-Canada’s IT Security Evaluation & Test Facility. Many of the world’s top data-protection firms locate their security operations in Canada. These include Blue Coat, CA Inc., Trend Micro, EMC, Entrust, Fortinet, McAfee, and Symantec.
