The context within which Canada’s 2010 cyber security strategy was conceived is radically different from today’s reality. The significant evolution in the variety and impact of cyber threats, the profound influence that the digital environment now has on the economy, and the rapid emergence of ground-breaking technologies is driving a new approach to cyber security in Canada. Informed by the results of a review of existing measures to protect critical infrastructure and Canadians from cyber threats, which was mandated by the Prime Minister and included a broad public consultation, there is now an opportunity to revisit our approach to cyber security, and to bring our collective capabilities – and opportunities – to a new level.
