Deloitte launches its newest Cyber Intelligence Centre for Eastern Canada

In recent years, cyberattacks have become increasingly coordinated and sophisticated, with cyber criminals targeting specific organizations, regions and customer profiles. To prevent potential financial, reputational and operational damage, organizations must go beyond the IT function. Senior management, legal counsel and boards must take proactive steps to strengthen cyber resiliency.

Deloitte's Cyber Intelligence Centres (CIC) help organizations disrupt attacks as they happen, reduce the timeframe and costs of recovery and contain future threats. Deloitte provides the people, processes, tools and technology to monitor and assess threats specific to an organization 24x7, so the organization can quickly and effectively mitigate risk and strengthen cyber resilience. Our professionals can also contextualize relevant threats to determine the risks to business, customers and stakeholders. With access to skilled resources, proven processes and effective tools that cross the entire security spectrum, Deloitte keeps pace with a constantly evolving threat landscape. Deloitte's CIC helps organizations become:

Secure- by adopting a risk-based approach to cyber-crime prevention, organizations gain access to timely, actionable threat intelligence, positioning you to improve the effectiveness of your security controls.

Vigilant- with a customized approach to cyber intelligence that takes the specific environment into account, organizations can more readily predict and prevent security incidents, strengthen the organization's threat profile and reduce vulnerabilities to criminal attack.

Resilient- some cyber incidents can cause serious business crises. Enhancing the ability to detect and respond to threats helps an organization minimize losses and get back to business-as-usual faster.
