Participate in the first edition of the Strategic Forum on Cybersecurity, a new must-attend event related to the accelerating digital transformation needs of businesses and, more broadly, of society.
The increase in home-based work is driving greater technology needs and opening the door to additional cybersecurity risks. Yet many businesses have yet to adopt a cybersecure environment.
With a thriving ecosystem of cybersecurity and technology companies, universities, colleges, research centers and laboratories, Montréal has the potential to help its businesses become cyber-resilient.
