Canada's Cyber Security Resource Centre (CSRC)
Well here is something interesting. The Canadian Advanced Technology Alliance (CATA) as part of its Homeland Security Task Force, announced the creation today of a Cyber Security Resource Centre (CSRC), designed to enhance homeland security by characterizing threats to Canada's information infrastructure. These threats come from increasing incidents of malicious code (viruses, worms, Trojans) and focused attacks.
The first step in this initiative is the launch of the CATA CanCERT Alliance. CanCERT will support CATA by acting as the trusted third party for collection, anonymization and consolidation of cyber-incidents reported by the community.
I am impressed to see Canada step up to the plate. Now we don't need to rely on the US's Department of Homeland Security to tell us what threats Canada is exposed to. (They never got it right anyways)
Good job. Can't wait to start reading the reports.Posted by SilverStr at February 10, 2004 01:23 PM | TrackBack
