What is the benefit of receiving information from the Canadian Centre for Cyber Security (CCCS) through the CCTX?

The CCTX was the first organization to sign a collaboration agreement with the CCCS.

Information made available by the partnership with the new CCCS will be combined with the unique information provided by CCTX Subscribers to provide a much broader, contextually-rich feed of data to CCTX Subscribers. This combined data is analyzed by the CCTX Security Operations Centre, producing daily reports to help CCTX Subscribers set priorities.

CCTX Subscribers can anonymously and voluntarily share their cyber threat intelligence with the CCCS via the CCTX platform. Subscribers have absolute control over whether their information is shared with the CCCS or not.  Subscribers also have the opportunity to comment on the value of the information received from the CCCS and to thereby help make it more useful. 

The CCCS brings together:

  • From Public Safety Canada: All functions of the Canadian Cyber Incident Response Centre (CCIRC) and the Get Cyber Safe public awareness campaign
  • From Shared Services Canada: Some of the functions of the Security Operations Centre
  • From the Communications Security Establishment: the entire IT Security branch

Combining CCCS public sector data with member-contributed CCTX private sector data is a powerful way to generate a unique cross-sectoral Canadian perspective.
