Cyber Security and Critical Energy Infrastructure Program (CCEIP)

The Call for Proposals under the Cyber Security and Critical Energy Infrastructure Program is now closed. Please check back for the latest information on the program.

Proposal review was completed by an Expert Review Panel and result notifications were sent to applicants in August 2019.

The Cyber Security and Critical Energy Infrastructure Program (CCEIP) received $2.42 million over 5 years to enhance the cyber security and resilience of domestic and cross-border energy infrastructure, in support of Canada’s National Cyber Security Strategy.

Projects funded

Projects funded under the program will strengthen the capability of the energy sector to prevent, prepare, respond to and recover from cyber threats. Projects will address a number of gaps in Industrial Control System (ICS) cyber security in the energy sector.

  • Supply chain risk management, including integrity assessment, counterfeit detection and conformance of Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) devices;
  • Identifying, evaluating, managing, and mitigating cyber risks;
  • Access to timely information on cyber threats and vulnerabilities; and
  • Monitoring, detection and cyber incident response.

The program funds projects under three streams:

  1. Research and Development;
  2. Sharing Knowledge and Expertise; and
  3. Standards, Best Practices and Guidelines.
