A bridge has now been built between those who develop the best cybersecurity solutions in the country, and organizations for which strong cybersecurity is more than essential. Various activities, workshops, forums, round tables, trade missions can quickly be developed under the memorandum of understanding announced today. A strong cybersecurity is more needed than ever, and we are confident that the collaboration we’re announcing today will be beneficial”, affirms Antoine Normand, President of In-Sec-M.

In this period of fundamental transformation, it’s more essential than ever to protect our businesses, and the population that depends on them.

Benoît, President of Aéro Montréal.
