About Get Cyber Safe

Get Cyber Safe

Get Cyber Safe is a national public awareness campaign created to inform Canadians about cyber security and the simple steps they can take to protect themselves online. The campaign is led by the Communications Security Establishment, with advice and guidance from its Canadian Centre for Cyber Security, on behalf of the Government of Canada.

The campaign is an important component of the National Cyber Security Strategy, dedicated to securing government systems, partnering to secure vital cyber systems outside the federal government, and helping Canadians be secure online.

Get Cyber Safe's goal is to bring together all levels of government, the public and private sectors, and the international community, to help Canadians be safer online.


Our mission

Our mission is simple: to keep Canadians safe online.

Our world has shifted online and it's important that all Canadians make cyber security a priority.  Let’s protect ourselves, our communities and our collective future. Let’s get cyber safe.

Through this website, social media channels, partnerships and outreach efforts, our aim is to increase the awareness of common cyber threats and make cyber security top of mind for all Canadians.

Cyber security is a shared responsibility; Canadians, the government, the private sector and our international partners all have an important play a role.


Our partners
