Canadian Cyber Defence Challenge


The Canadian Cyber Defence Challenge (CCDC) in conjunction with Check Point Software Technologies Inc. and CIPS are pleased to announce a scholarship for participants of the 2018 CCDC event.

The CCDC with its event develops student's awareness and understanding of cyber security fundamentals. The goal of the program is to educate and empower the students to use the Internet safely and securely. We also hope to introduce them to the capabilities of cyber technology in protecting individual and organizations, the networks they connect to, and Canada's shared digital assets.

Our vision is to see that every student in Canada has the appropriate knowledge and skills required to make informed decisions regarding the safe use of information technology (IT) and security. We do this by making sure that education and training opportunities are available for any student that has the desire to further expand and explore that knowledge in post-secondary education and career choices.

To help meet these goals, up to four(4) $500 scholarships are being offered to participants of this year's event.
