Canadian Cybersecurity Skills Framework

Canadian businesses and industries are struggling to meet their cybersecurity needs

There are four key workforce development challenges for Canadian businesses right now:

  • Generating and retaining cybersecurity operations talent to meet the needs of the Canadian labour market
  • Ensuring contributing technical and non-technical roles have required knowledge, skills and abilities
  • Being responsive to the changing technology landscape
  • Normalizing cybersecurity work and activities within the Canadian workplace.

This Canadian Cybersecurity Skills Framework aligns with the robust and detailed U.S. National Initiative on Cybersecurity Education Cybersecurity Workforce Framework
