July 12, 2021—Ottawa— The Canadian Cyber Threat Exchange (CCTX) and Business Council of Canada (BCC) are today strengthening their longstanding partnership with the goal of reducing cyber-security threats to Canada’s economy, businesses, and consumers.
In 2015, the BCC and a group of leading Canadian companies helped design and launch the CCTX. An independent, not-for-profit organization open to businesses and institutions of all sizes, the CCTX enables collaboration to reduce financial, operational, and reputational risk through access to timely, relevant, and actionable cyber threat information.
Since its launch, the CCTX has played a leading role within the Canadian cyber security community, fostering collaboration among a wide range of industry players and forging key partnerships, including with the federal government’s Canadian Centre for Cyber Security.
Effective today, the BCC is joining the CCTX as an Affiliate Member, underscoring its commitment to building a digital economy that inspires consumer trust and confidence. The announcement also builds on the CCTX’s success in establishing itself as Canada’s leader in cyber threat sharing and collaboration.
“Defending Canadians against cyber threats is a team effort. The Business Council of Canada has long been committed to strengthening public trust and confidence in the digital economy. Working together, we can help build a safer and more secure Canada.”
- Robert Gordon, Executive Director, Canadian Cyber Threat Exchange
“Cyber attacks threaten the viability of Canadian businesses as well as the privacy, financial security, and personal safety of Canadians. The Business Council of Canada is pleased to be working with the CCTX to build a stronger, more cyber-resilient Canada.”
- Goldy Hyder, President & CEO, Business Council of Canada
