About

Cybereco, a recognized multi-sectoral reference in cybersecurity in Quebec and Canada.

OUR STORY

Cybereco was founded in 2018 by the Desjardins Group, the National Bank of Canada, Deloitte, and the RHEA Group. Our founding members took on the challenge of sharing resources and expertise in a spirit of collaboration. The goal? To improve the cyber-resilience of businesses and individuals, but also to accelerate the training of a world-class workforce and the development of effective technological solutions for a prosperous and secure economy. Cybereco currently has more than 20 member organisations from the financial, business, industrial and academic sectors. Some are well established . Others are just starting up. But all of them have agreed to mobilize and join the adventure, for a common goal: making Cybereco a recognized multisectoral reference in cybersecurity!
