2020 Virtual Canada Cyber Summit


Due to the developing situation with the COVID-19 pandemic, this program will be moved online. Our top priority is the safety of our attendees and we are following the guidance of Canadian and International Health Authorities. Attendees will have full access to an attendee hub and the programming will be spread out over four days. Registered attendees will have access to live lectures, or can watch the programming on demand. HTCIA members from across the world are invited to join the program at the low member rate of $75. Not a member yet? Register at the nonmember rate for access to all education, plus an annual membership. Hosting this program online will allow all member access to the exceptional education being host by the HTCIA Canada Chapters. 

Networking will remain a key feature of this event, via the attendee hub and the live lectures. The program sponsors will have the opportunity to showcase their programs, interact online with attendees, and share key information with a global audience. 

Who should attend?

  • High technology or cybercrime investigators from private industry, government, local, state, country and federal law enforcement agencies.
  • Companies offering products or services in the field of high technology crimes or cybercrime.

The High Technology Crime Investigation Association (HTCIA) is one of the oldest, largest and most prestigious high technology crimes non-profit organizations in existence today. HTCIA’s primary focus is to encourage, promote, aid and effect the voluntary interchange of data, information, experience, ideas, and knowledge about methods, processes, and techniques relating to high technology crime and cybercrime.  We offer 16 distinct lectures over 4 days with social and professional networking amongst industry experts.  Our exhibitors will also have an opportunity to “show off” their industry-best tools during the Vendor Showcase.
