We have been made aware of recent scams impersonating the Cyber Centre. We do not make unsolicited telephone calls to individual Canadians. Any unsolicited phone calls to a private citizen claiming to be from the Cyber Centre are fraudulent. If you receive a call claiming to come from us, please call us 1-833-CYBER-88 or email email@example.com to verify its legitimacy.
Reporting to the Cyber Centre will not launch an immediate law enforcement response, such as investigating cybercrime or other criminal offences.
If you believe a cyber incident is an imminent threat to life or of a criminal nature, please contact your local police services (911) or the RCMP. We encourage all victims to report cybercrime activities to law enforcement.
Reporting a cyber incident helps the Cyber Centre keep Canada and Canadians safe online. Your information will enable us to provide cybersecurity advice, guidance and services.
