Welcome message

In our dynamic and ever-expanding digital landscape, the significance of cybersecurity has reached unprecedented heights. However, with this increasing importance comes a heightened level of complexity.

Enter CyberAlberta – a dedicated initiative designed to empower both public and private organizations in Alberta to effectively combat the constantly evolving threats they encounter daily.

Our primary objective is to fortify Alberta's overall cybersecurity resilience, ensuring that every entity operating within the province has seamless access to the information, resources, and support necessary to safeguard the interests of Albertans.

At the helm of CyberAlberta is our team – the Government of Alberta’s Cybersecurity Division. Our membership comprises a diverse array of entities, including municipalities, towns, libraries, postsecondary institutions, banking establishments, and businesses of all scales, collectively forming a robust alliance dedicated to cybersecurity excellence.

We extend an open invitation to all organizations operating in the province and committed to supporting Albertans to join our organization. We are stronger together.

Among the myriad benefits our members enjoy, our intelligence reports stand out as a key service, delivering crucial insights into emergent threats and actionable strategies for response.

Additionally, we offer comprehensive awareness materials that individuals and organizations can leverage to educate themselves and their staff about cyber threats, fostering a safer online environment. Our aim is to empower members to understand, prepare for, and effectively respond to emerging threats, alleviating the administrative burden associated with researching incidents and trends.

In a concerted effort with education service providers, we actively explore innovative approaches to cultivating cybersecurity talent, addressing the global shortage in cybersecurity resources. Moreover, we aim to establish benchmarks that organizations should strive towards, ensuring their confidence in being well-protected.

To enhance accessibility, we've launched our new website, a central hub for all things CyberAlberta. Be sure to check back regularly, as we'll be continually adding valuable information and resources in the months to come.

As CyberAlberta matures, my vision is for it to catalyze positive growth in the Alberta cybersecurity landscape. I firmly believe that our community of interest, with our membership diversity, possesses the potential and expertise to deliver impactful solutions to some of the most pressing challenges facing the cybersecurity industry, such as expanding the talent pool and addressing AI-powered threats.

Sincerely,
Martin Dinel, BSc, ISP, ITCP, CISSP
Chief Information Security Officer and ADM, Cybersecurity Division
