Ottawa-Gatineau Cybersecurity Awareness Month Event
1 October 2020
On Thursday, October 1st and Friday, October 2nd, Ottawa-Gatineau’s cybersecurity community will come together for the third straight year to share expertise and highlight innovation in this dynamic sector.
Over two half-day sessions, attendees will hear from industry experts, from both public and private sectors, and have a chance to take part in virtual networking sessions. Topics of focus will include Canada’s digital identity, women in cyber, and how disruptive technologies could impact defence systems.
Confirmed speakers include Deborah Clark-Forster, Senior Account Executive, Ministry of Economic Development, Job Creation and Trade, Province of Ontario, Joni Brennan, President, DIACC; Dan Butnaru, Senior Advisor Digital Identity, ATOS; Jim Watson, Mayor of Ottawa; Maxime Pedneaud-Jobin, Mayor of Gatineau; plus many others.
Once again, this year’s event will culminate with our popular cybersecurity pitch event. This is a unique opportunity for emerging cybersecurity leaders in our region to sharpen their pitch skills, gain constructive feedback from our judges, and generate awareness for innovative cyber solutions.
This year’s event is supported by Invest Ottawa, lead economic development agency for Canada’s Capital, Ville de Gatineau, ID Gatineau, IN-SEC-M and the Ottawa Cyber Security Meetup.
