Building safeguards

Making digital spaces safer

When engineers build new online protection systems, they’re building ways to protect millions of Canadians from cyberattacks. 

By designing online systems that monitor and detect suspicious activities, engineers are creating digital defence systems that are instrumental in protecting Canadians from potential cybersecurity threats. By designing phishing detection software, they are creating systems that can scan online activities and detect anomalies with high precision, providing online users with a crucial layer of security. By developing software that requires multi-factor authentication, engineers are creating digital spaces that are both secure and user-friendly, safeguarding personal and sensitive information. And by harnessing the capabilities of artificial intelligence (AI), engineers are developing sophisticated algorithms capable of learning and adapting to the ever-evolving tactics of phishing scams and cybercriminals. In doing this, engineers help maintain the integrity and trust of digital communications and transactions for Canadians.
