Toronto, ON – The CATA Cyber Council, a collaboration between public and private sector industry leaders is launching a national survey designed to gauge the true state of cyber security in Canada. 

“The Cyber Council is excited to launch the first Canada-focused cybersecurity survey. The results will be compiled in a report which will serve to not only provide insights on the current state of cybersecurity in Canada, but also serve as a helpful benchmark tool for organizations looking to improve and strengthen their cyber resiliency. We encourage organizations to take time to complete the survey, the results of which will be released in the form a report in Q1 2016,” says Imran Ahmad, cyber security lawyer with Cassels Brock and CATA Cyber Advisory Council member. 

This national initiative will provide perspectives and concerns from a cross-section of public and private sector participants in Canada. The survey, which targets leaders in a variety of roles and industries, will serve as Canada’s first in-depth view of how cyber security is impacting our businesses, our government, national security and consumer confidence. The results of the survey will be delivered in a white paper by the CATA Cyber Council in early 2016 and will serve as a catalyst for national consultations planned for the year.
