Canada cyber and defence sectors 'lack mutual trust'

The Canadian federal government isn’t working closely enough with the cyber security sector in purchasing products or sharing threat information, says a recent report from the country’s defence sector.

 

Wait.  You mean three bodies based on paranoia don't trust each other?

 

Sorry.  The report does have a point.  Government, military, business, academia, law enforcement and other security silos should be communicating and cooperating more with each other.  But this is an ongoing problem, and it's hardly news ...

Re: Canada cyber and defence sectors 'lack mutual trust'

It's old news getting rehashed because nothing has changed. Typical government bureaucracies no matter what the flag is that they fall under.

 

Until some drastic issue happens, think US - 9/11 or Japan's earthquake/tsunami/nuke reactor accident, these silo'ed agencies are too sand-wedged like an ostrich to see the need to interact with anyone else.  It will take a huge disaster to get them to stop naval gazing and look beyond themselves.

It needs to be even more drastic than that.  I remember, after 9/11, all kinds of people congratulating me on being in the right field, since all kinds of new "security" positions were being created.  Since I wasn't seeing any increase in job postings for my students, this puzzled me.  It took me about nine months of research to figure it out: all kinds of network admin positions were suddenly being called network security admin, and so forth.  No new money, training, or staff, of course, but all kinds of new "security" positions were being created ...

Gadzooks!

And generally Ottawa thinks foreign companies have better software and hardware solutions than Canadian firms, she added.

Isn't that (how shall I put it?) so self-deprecatingly .... Canadian?
