Canada’s First #UnHackable Community

Funded in part by the Safer and Vital Communities Grant, Project KnowledgeShare forms a new community partnership between Durham Regional Police, Victim Services of Durham Region, The Town of Ajax, and KnowledgeFlow Cybersafety Foundation.

Protect, Detect, Correct

All KnowledgeShare resources focus on the perpetual cycle of cyber-situational awareness. By protecting accounts and devices, cybercrime can be avoided at the outset. By detecting fraud attempts as they occur, cybercrime victimization can be stopped in its tracks. Knowing how to correct or respond when fraud occurs, minimizes damage, losses, and prevents revictimization.
