Future of Remote Work:
Supporting Cybersecurity for Canadian Businesses

There is considerable discussion and planning underway on the next steps for the future of work in the Canadian tech sector as we continue to navigate the pandemic beyond the third wave. It is clear that one-size does not fit all as we’ve seen from the very different approaches corporations are currently taking on their back-to-work strategies and plans. The pandemic has also caused many companies to rethink their workplace spaces, culture, work incentives, hiring practices and communication and technology tools.

This is where you come in: as we navigate this new world of remote work, how do we protect Canadian businesses?

Your mission: Imagine your dream job paired with working remotely and develop a solution that keeps Canadian data secure. Whether you’re in a coffee shop in downtown Toronto, or you’re in Europe on holiday and want to access your email, we want to know how the Future of Work will impact cybersecurity. The best concepts will win up to $8,000!

What’s the Challenge?

Ever wondered what the world will be like in 5 years? How will remote work impact data security? Knowing the threats that face SMEs in Canada, what can we do to protect them? What are all of the weaknesses that businesses have and how do we defend them against attacks? We’d like you to develop a solution that recognizes and combats all cybersecurity threats.
