A Canadian-made cybersecurity system is making the internet safer thanks to a $475,000 investment from Western Economic Diversification Canada’s Western Innovation Initiative (WINN).

The funding was announced by the Honourable Carla Qualtrough, Minister of Public Services and Procurement and Accessibility, on behalf of the Honourable Navdeep Bains, Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development and Minister responsible for Western Economic Diversification Canada, at the 2018 Aerospace, Defence, and Security Expo.

As the global economy becomes increasingly digital, the importance of protecting organizations against cyber attacks continues to grow. WINN will help HYAS Infosec Inc. – a Vancouver Island-based information security firm – to commercialize their next generation cybersecurity platform while creating new economic opportunities and employment in the fast-growing threat intelligence sector right here in B.C.
