“Cyber Security – A New Profession” Part 1 Mar 23 2022

Today on your show our topic is: “Part 1 -Cyber Security, a New Profession”. Cybersecurity is the practice of protecting critical systems and sensitive information from digital attacks. Also known as information technology (IT) security, cybersecurity measures are designed to combat threats against networked systems and applications, whether those threats originate from inside or outside of an organization. The advent of major European conflict means Canada must take action. Cyber-attacks will be part of the weapons used to take down power systems and communication systems to render opponents impotent. E4Pi’s Cybersecurity committee has some of Canada’s foremost experts and consulted with leading stakeholders such as the Canadian Center for Cyber Security, Bell Canada and the Canadian Military. We need competent and trustworthy people to protect our critical infrastructure. Such individuals do exist in our nation, but they do not have the benefit of a dedicated licensing body to assess and credentialise such individuals.
