At BDC we recognize the central role that cybersecurity plays in enabling our mission and serving the needs of Canadian entrepreneurs.

Our cybersecurity and technology risk teams are constantly seeking to improve the Bank’s risk posture and continue to safeguard our operations, systems, and information from emerging threats.  We also firmly believe that security isn’t a zero-sum game and are committed to the pursuit of appropriate knowledge-sharing in this space with other organisations who are similarly committed to building a more secure ecosystem.

To this end, our teams of dedicated and qualified professionals are enthusiastically looking forward to collaborating with our colleagues from Cybereco’s network to build a more robust cyber landscape for Québec organisations and fostering the next generation of cyber talent through information sharing, content creation, and professional development.
