Improve your organization’s cybersecurity practices and prepare for certification
Enhancing your organization’s cybersecurity is important to build and maintain trust with your customers and supply chain. CyberSecure Canada is a voluntary federal certification program designed to help your organization improve its cybersecurity practices and help you enhance your competitive advantage by letting your supply chain know you’re a trusted business partner.
Prepare for certification
A free, bilingual eLearning series is available to help your organization improve its cybersecurity practices and prepare
for certification. The eLearning series is based on the 13 security controls of the CyberSecure Canada program and consists of 14 modules. The modules, which each take 20 to 60 minutes to complete, are self-paced and designed for learners with minimal technical knowledge.
Each module includes:
- an explanation of the importance of the security control
- a case study, highlighting what can go wrong without
- proper measures in place
- knowledge checks and quizzes to test understanding
- a summary of the certification requirements for each security control
Additional resources to support your learning, such as how-to guides, fillable templates and examples of policies and plans, are available on the CyberSecure Canada page
Obtain CyberSecure Canada certification
Apply for certification by registering on the CyberSecure Canada portal. Once registered, you can complete a certification readiness survey, select an accredited certification body to conduct an audit, and track your certification process.
Build trust with customers, partners, investors and suppliers
Once your organization is certified, the Government of Canada will provide you with a CyberSecure Canada certification mark that is valid for two years. Display it on your website and in your place of operation to let your customers, investors, partners and suppliers know that you have taken action to protect your organization from cyber threats.
