What is the FIC?

The International Cybersecurity Forum (FIC), a leading digital trust event, is coming to Montreal to connect the Canadian, American and European ecosystems.

Echoing the European FIC organized in France for more than 10 years, the American FIC is a hybrid event combining a trade show, a high-level forum and an international summit. It will bring together players from national and international ecosystems for two days of interactions and business meetings: political decision-makers, business leaders, senior civil and military authorities, CIO/CISO, lawyers, investors, cybersecurity experts, teachers, researchers, students and ethical hackers.

The themes covered during the event relate both to operational issues (incident response and crisis management, cybersecurity technologies, threat intelligence, development of industrial ecosystems, etc.) and to strategic issues (industrial policy, regulation, geopolitical issues, etc.).

The objectives

The FIC is an open and committed professional event which aims to:

  • Accelerate the development of the cybersecurity industry and secure products and services
  • To promote the strategic, diplomatic, industrial and economic interests related to the field
  • To decompartmentalize cybersecurity issues and promote digital transformation thanks to the emergence of a "digital trust"
  • Federate all public, governmental, private and academic actors in order to accelerate cooperation between the two shores of the Atlantic, innovation and business opportunities
  • Promoting cybersecurity and its professions, in order to encourage vocations, develop talents and work for an inclusive and trustworthy digital society.
 
THE PLACE

Why Montreal?

Montreal, with its many assets, is the ideal city to host the FIC:

  • Its geographical location—which allows easy access from many major American and European cities—and its unparalleled welcoming quality.
  • The optimal organization services offered by the Palais des Congrès, 20 minutes from the international airport and with comprehensive hotel facilities within walking distance. It is an optimal place to create an event of worldwide scope and to promote Canadian cybersecurity and the dynamism of the province of Quebec.
  • An extremely dynamic local and Quebec cybersecurity ecosystem.
  • Its strong tech and entrepreneurial culture, which attracts some of the world's most innovative companies in the fields of artificial intelligence and virtual reality.
