Canada to join NATO's Cyber Defence Research Centre

Canada is now in the process of joining the NATO Cooperative Cyber Defence Centre of Excellence (CCDCOE). The defense hub is eleven years old and Canada is one of the last NATO countries to join. CCDCOE, which includes members from 25 states (22 NATO nations and three NATO-allied contributing participants), is a military think-tank and is a leader in developing cyber defense solutions through multinational and interdisciplinary approaches. It does not defend against cyberattacks but instead conducts research and delivers training and exercises within four key areas of cybersecurity: technology, strategy, operations and law.
