Canada to set up cyber security certification for defence contractors – minister

OTTAWA (Reuters) – Canada will work with the United States to draft a cyber security certification framework for defence contractors that will be identical for both countries as incidents of malicious hacking increase, the defence minister said on Wednesday.

Russian President Vladimir “Putin’s war on Ukraine has reminded all of us that the cyber domain is crucial to our national security,” Canadian Defence Minister Anita Anand said at CANSEC, an annual defence trade show in Ottawa.

“Here at home, malicious cyber activities have targeted defence contractors and subcontractors across Canada, leaving classified information vulnerable,” she said.
