CSIS paper proposes helping protect critical infrastructure
By Jordan Press
The federal government should consider subsidizing IT security for businesses across the country in the name of national security, suggests a research paper from Canada’s spy agency.
The paper written for the Canadian Security Intelligence Service in March and posted online recently, makes the suggestion that to secure the networks running the country’s critical infrastructure, such as electricity grids and transport systems, the government could provide cash to companies to help them harden their defences against cyber-attacks.
