Work With Us

Cyber Leadership Council

As tomorrow’s leaders and innovators, youth are a vital talent pool to meet cyber security skill demands in the digital economy. Additionally, regardless of what career path youth choose, ensuring they develop cyber security skills in school is paramount to equip them with critical digital and cyber skills as the Internet of Things permeates their everyday lives. Recognizing the importance of this, through our Focus on IT (FIT) program, we have introduced CyberTitan, Canada’s Cyber Security Education Initiative, where we will continue to work with secondary and post-secondary schools across Canada to develop relevant student skills that are essential to their seamless transition into post-secondary ICT education pathways, with the hope they will graduate to employment in fields that drive Canada’s economic prosperity and innovation.

This would not be possible without a phenomenal group of dedicated cyber security leaders working together with us at the helm to realize this vision. We are excited to introduce ICTC’s National Cyber Security Leadership Council on Youth and Education. Together, we will create pathways for youth and educators to promote cyber security learning opportunities.
