ISED Cyber Standards Outreach - ITAC Cyber Security Forum
One of our Senior Cyber Solutions Advisors, Kevin de Snayer, will be attending ITAC's Cyber Security Forum to discuss the development of Canadian Cyber Security Standards.
"ITAC is pleased to partner with the Ministry of Innovation, Science, and Economic Development (ISED) to host a workshop as part of our series of Cyber Forums to discuss the development of Canadian Cyber Security Standards. There is an option to attend in-person and via Go-to-Webinar.
Last year, in budget 2018 the Government of Canada announced a new 5-year cyber assessment and certification program for Canadian small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). The program will develop a new SME targeted, voluntary cyber security standard, assess, and certify Canadian organizations against this standard. The cyber standard and program will be based upon the expertise and support of the Canadian Center for Cyber Security (CCCS) and the Standards Council of Canada (SCC). ISED is responsible for the overall program implementation and delivery."
