We are Strengthening Cybersecurity

Cybersecurity is a growing and important issue for our member institutions.

With the number of new cyberthreats facing our community, cybersecurity is a top priority for our member institutions.

To strengthen cybersecurity in our community, BCNET formed the Cybersecurity and Identity Management Services Committee. Made up of a diverse group of chief information officers, chief information security officers, information security managers and subject matter experts, the committee’s mandate is to:

  • Collaborate on service requirements
  • Influence sector-wide practices and standards
  • Recommend information protection, data protection and privacy programs
  • Identify common cybersecurity service needs
  • Prioritize service delivery

The committee prioritized a number of shared services to help member institutions protect information.
