“The internet has become an invaluable tool for Canadian families, businesses and governments,” said Minister Toews. “But just as cyberspace is constantly evolving, so too are the cyber threats to our security, prosperity and quality of life. It’s time to take protection of Canada’s cyberspace to the next level and that’s exactly what Canada’s Cyber Security Strategy will do.”
The Strategy will invest in securing Government of Canada systems, as well as partnering with other governments and with industry to ensure systems vital to Canadian security, economic prosperity and quality of life are protected. It also includes boosting education and awareness to better help Canadians keep their personal information safe and secure when online at home and at work.
