N.B.’s Future is Cyber

By Tyson Johnson

 

The provincial election has us thinking about priorities for the future, and cybersecurity should be at the top of any party’s economic growth strategy. Cybersecurity is already booming in New Brunswick and is poised to play a much more significant role in our provincial economy, with future job prospects in the thousands and a push to be the national cybersecurity epicentre underway.

National epicentre, you say?

 

Yes. This is a realistic goal backed by a strong track record.

 

While the idea of New Brunswick as a national digital leader may challenge your perception of our economy as one rooted in natural resources and energy, cybersecurity isn’t a promising pipe dream. It’s already proven by years of strategic growth.

 

And if you think cybersecurity is only for techies or is the stuff of blockbuster thrillers about international hackers or the dark web, think again.

 

We all live with cybersecurity every day. Life as we know it would grind to a halt without it.

The evolution continues. Meet CyberNB 3.0

CyberNB has evolved into an independent non-profit with Canada’s most extensive cybersecurity membership program.

This is the independent organization that will take Canada’s cybersecurity industry to the next level. We are a super-connector between business, government and academia, multiplying opportunities at home and abroad for our members and partners. 

 

CyberNB was founded in 2016 as a program of ONB, New Brunswick’s provincial economic development agency. It has evolved since that time, growing exponentially as it proved its value, coordinating success for partners and ecosystem stakeholders.

 

CyberNB 2.0 marked the step from program to organization. As a provincial crown corporation, we continued to add value, driving synergies and devising original solutions across the network. 

 

Now, the time has come to emerge as an independent national organization with global connections. CyberNB 3.0 is a non-profit overseen by a board of directors composed of leaders in business, government and academia from across Canada. This new iteration marks the launch of CIPnet, our membership program, and Canada’s most extensive network of cybersecurity stakeholders for critical infrastructure protection.
