CIO Association of Canada Joins the Canadian Cybersecurity Alliance


August 25, 2016

CIOCAN is pleased to announce that it will be participating in the Canadian Cybersecurity Alliance (CCA) / Alliance canadienne sur la cybersécurité (ACC).  The CCA-ACC (originally initiated as the Inter-Association Working Group on Cyber Security – IAWGCS) is a voluntary, non-hierarchical, not-for-profit, agile network, founded by Grant Lecky in 2013. The primary purpose of the CCA-ACC is to enhance the professionalization of the Canadian cyber domain through effective inter-association engagement and knowledge-sharing.  To date, more than 90 associations with a stake in cyber security have confirmed their participation in the CCA-ACC, making this initiative unprecedented in both scale and scope.  Each of the participating associations contributes their own unique perspective on the Canadian cyber landscape.

The CCA-ACC is administered by a National Council, whose role includes maintaining the structure of the CCA-ACC itself, and facilitating inter-association dialogue.

Omid-Hamed-sm Omid Hamed will be the primary association representative to participate on behalf of CIOCAN. 



Freddie-Martinez-rdFreddie Martinez will be the alternate representative.
