CyberNB Case Study: The CyberSmart 2017 Summit

With the launch of CyberSmart, via CyberNB, New Brunswick is taking bold steps towards mitigating Canada’s cybersecurity skills and workforce development challenges. We are excited to leverage partnerships with industry, government, and academia to facilitate the building of a pan-Canadian strategy.

In May, ONB/CyberNB hosted Canada’s first Cybersecurity Summit. The CyberSmart 2017 Summit focused on the creation of a national skills and workforce development strategy for Canada.

The two-day event brought together 300 delegates from Canada and the United States. Attendees represented government, industry, and academia, including university, college, and high school students. Attendees focused on identifying key areas of curriculum and professional development as well as continuous learning.
