Coming soon: a Canadian cyber-security strategy

A national cyber-security strategy that will seek to protect key infrastructure as well as Canadians’ identities is on the way , an RCMP executive says. Details of the strategy — a partnership between the public and private sectors — will emerge over the next few months, said David Black, manager of the RCMP’s cyber infrastructure protection section. Black also said Canada needs new regulations and standards for computer forensic professionals to boost the quality of evidence that can be brought forward in security cases. “There is no standard at this point and we need one. Not in terms of necessarily licensing … we would like to see a similar training regime developed for those claiming to do computer forensics.”
