RHEA Group in collaboration with le Mouvement Desjardins, National Bank of Canada and Deloitte will be leading the CyberEco initiative in Montreal, Canada.

Businesses, governments and institutions all over the world recognize that the solution to cybercrime relies on awareness and prevention. Le Mouvement Desjardins, National Bank of Canada, Deloitte and RHEA Group are the founding members of CyberEco, a non-profit organization, to develop resident expertise, awareness and training programs, as well as technologies and solutions to equip organizations with Cyber secured applications that will proactively protect their operations.

Even though cybersecurity is increasingly recognized as essential for organizations in the current market, there is a growing shortage of cybersecurity experts in the marketplace. CyberEco will be tackling the deficit by bringing the opportunity to both businesses and institutions to take part in the initiative providing a cyber capacity development environment.
