About this Event

In an age of nonstop security breaches and hacks, understanding digital security matters more now than ever before. Recent high-profile attacks have highlighted how important it is for Canadian startups, the government and everyday citizens to strengthen their cyber security knowledge.

Partnering with the Royal Bank of Canada (RBC) and Rogers Cyber Secure Catalyst, the DMZ at Ryerson University helped foster the next generation of cybersecurity experts through CanHack, an online competition exclusively for Canadian high school students.
