How protected DNS helps Canadians combat Cyber Attacks

 How protected DNS helps Canadians combat Cyber Attacks

Join experts from CIRA, the Canadian Centre for Cyber Security, The Ottawa Hospital and CanSSOC on May 10, 2022 for a timely and important discussion about how protected DNS  can help Canadian organizations combat the growing threat of cyber attacks.

Over the past six months, a string of high-profile cyber attacks has disrupted hospitals, transit systems and academic institutions in Canada. These attacks have prompted a national conversation about what can be done to protect the critical infrastructure that Canadians depend on. IT professionals, governments and organizations of all types are looking for new ways to defend against bad actors and improve their cyber security practices—especially now that hybrid and remote work are here to stay. This webcast will feature experts and industry leaders discussing how protected DNS, threat intelligence feeds, and public-private partnerships can play a key role in protecting Canadians and the institutions they rely on.

Date: May 10, 2022

Time: 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. eastern time

Location: Virtual (over Zoom) and broadcast live on YouTube
