Ottawa Announces Public Consultation on Cyber Security Strategy

The federal government has started a three-month public consultation on updating its cyber security strategy, asking security pros and citizens for input on how it should not only strengthen the national IT systems and critical infrastructure in the private sector but also help businesses and residents.

Public Services Minister Ralph Goodale said Tuesday the consultation, which ends Oct. 15, will help identify gaps and opportunities, bring forward new ideas to shape Canada’s renewed approach to cyber security and capitalize on the advantages of new technology and the digital economy.

“We need to get really good at cyber security – across our personal, business, infrastructure and government sectors – so we can take full advantage of the digital economy, while protecting the safety and security of Canadians, and selling our valuable cyber skills and products into a booming market throughout the rest of the world,” Goodale said in a statement.”
