ISSP highlighted at Canadian Meetup @ IT Arena 2020

The Embassy of Canada to Ukraine and Trade Commissioner Service in partnership with the Canada-Ukraine Chamber of Commerce (CUCC) and the Canada-Ukraine Trade and Investment Support (CUTIS) Project organized a Canadian Meetup @ IT Arena 2020 event in Ukraine on October 10th. Almost 20 speakers set the tone of the conference during a virtual meetup titled “Ingredients of a high-performing IT sector as a long-term sustainable growth promoter: a Canadian perspective.” This meetup caught the attention of more than 60 Canadian companies and hundreds of Ukrainian representatives.

“I trust that this conference will generate ideas and collaboration to the benefit of both countries” said Larisa Galadza, Ambassador of Canada to Ukraine, at the start of the meetup.


During the fruitful discussion, ISSP was highlighted as a “beautiful success story” of a Ukrainian cybersecurity company that over the course of 10 years grew from a startup to a regional leader and the go-to firm for victims of Ukraine’s cyberwar, and now continues expanding into North American markets. 


Founded in Ukraine in 2008, ISSP started its operations in Canada in 2020. 


“At ISSP, we perceive Canada not just as a market but also as a core location to explore North America and our global operations. ISSP is active in 10 countries in Eastern Europe and has a presence in Asia. We are one of the leaders in cybersecurity in Ukraine and Eastern Europe. When we decided to expand our operations to North America, we chose Canada as our destination, having the support of the federal and Ontario governments and the CUCC-CUTIS Project” says Oleh Derevianko, ISSP Group Chairman.


ISSP Canada brings to the North American market unique experience in responding to some of the most devastating cyberattacks in history, including state-sponsored invasions. At the moment, ISSP offers Canadian customers various managed security services including compromise assessments, penetration testing, source code analysis, and consulting.
