Co-op students across province receive cybersecurity awareness training

FREDERICTON — Through a partnership with Opportunities New Brunswick, CyberNB and the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development (EECD), Beauceron Security is providing cybersecurity awareness training to high school co-op students across the province.

Cybersecurity is a risk that businesses across New Brunswick are facing as more services and information is being provided online.

“This partnership is a collaboration between ONB, the private sector and government as a whole, working together to deliver value for New Brunswickers,” said Honourable Mary Wilson, Minister of Economic Development and Small Business and Minister responsible for Opportunities NB. “We’ve made a significant difference for high school students in the province by providing industry quality awareness training prior to their co-op placements.”

According to the 2018 Verizon Data Breach report, 93% of malicious data breaches came from a form of cyber attack that leverages e-mails, texts, phone calls or even in-person visits, known as social engineering.

The most effective and affordable solution to social engineering is an educated and engaged community. Beauceron was designed to empower people across organizations to make better decisions regarding cybersecurity. It teaches them to ask the right kinds of questions at the right time.

“It’s been fantastic to take the technology we’ve built and deployed to customers around the world to help educate students entering the workforce in our own province,” says Beauceron CEO and co-founder David Shipley. “This partnership helped us develop a new line of potential business that could lead to export opportunities in Canada and around the world in K-12.”

Beauceron Security’s behaviour change platform will give New Brunswick co-op students a leg up when they enter the workforce. They will be educated and empowered to mitigate risk in this growing global concern on behalf of their future employers.

It Takes a Community to Raise a Company

Founding a technology company, let alone a cybersecurity firm, is not for the faint of heart.

It takes more than just a great idea or great team to build a successful venture.

It takes a supportive community willing to provide a variety of critical assistance – from early stage capital to access to mentors and advisors to programs to accelerator growth. Most importantly, it takes early adopters willing to give a start-up a chance to prove their technology and value.
