To be Canada’s cyber security leader for charities while inspiring and empowering today's youth to pursue a career in the cyber security field.
In an increasingly connected and digitized world no business is safe from cyber attacks. At Hackers for Change our mission is to educate and enable charities to protect their computer and information systems allowing them to focus on maximizing their social impact.
Knowledge is power. We want to empower the next generation of cyber security talent by providing educational resources. We want to educate the planet to achieve our vision of creating a more secure planet.
Despite the growing demand for cyber security there is often a barrier of experience in place to prevent students and new graduates from entering the industry. We want to bridge this gap by giving aspiring cyber security professionals an opportunity to gain relevant experience.
We hold ourselves accountable by measuring ourselves against the highest standards of integrity and fiscal responsibility.
We build trust through constructive, candid communication that serves the common good. We value the talent, time and intentions of all of our volunteers.
We love cyber security. All the industry professionals that work with our organization love cyber security with a passion and do this outside their career. We love the idea of being able to apply our talent to give back to our community.
