The Province organizes and hosts two “Security Day” events each year (Spring and Fall), free of charge, primarily for government employees. Speakers from government programs, law enforcement and security organizations give presentations on the day’s theme. The next Security Day will be held all day Wednesday, November 9th with the theme of “Risk-e-Business”.
Each Security Day has sponsors from the cyber security private sector that give presentations and provide hospitality. Security Days have become highly regarded in the security community and by B.C. Government employees across every region of the Province. Government offices are encouraged to book a boardroom, pop some corn, and Make it a Security Day Event! (PDF)
