Background

The CCTX will share information about cyber threats and vulnerabilities among businesses, government, and research institutions. It will provide its members and the general public with analysis of cybersecurity issues and act as a point of contact for cyber information-sharing organizations in other countries.

The CCTX will enhance cybersecurity collaboration among private and public sector partners, strengthening their ability to protect critical infrastructure, sensitive or proprietary data, and customer information. By joining the CCTX, smaller firms and institutions with more limited capabilities will gain access to timely threat information, toolkits and analytical capabilities that will improve their cyber defences. Canadian consumers will similarly gain access to free resources that will help them identify and guard against cyber threats, including identity theft and fraud.

The founding members of the CCTX are: Air Canada, Bell Canada, Canadian National Railway Company, HydroOne, Manulife, Royal Bank of Canada, TELUS, TD Bank Group and TransCanada Corporation.
