The Liberal Leader is calling on Canada’s leaders to work with the United States and other nations to make it easier for companies and individuals to conduct surveillance and hacking attacks.
In a series of interviews, Trudeau said the government needs to do more to protect Canadians from cyber threats and urged leaders in the U.S. and elsewhere to adopt the recommendations of the U:S.
cybersecurity task force.
But the Liberals are not the only ones seeking to move Canada ahead.
“I think we have to have a global cyber security strategy,” Trudeau said in an interview with the Financial Post.
“And if you have a strategy you need to put in place.
And we’re going to need to make sure that the global community can work together.””
I mean, we’re the third-largest economy in the world and the number one in cyber security.
And we’re going to need to make sure that the global community can work together.”
Canada and the U, along with other countries, have been working together on cyber strategy.
The U.K., France and Germany are participating.
“Canada’s position on this is clear,” Trudeau told the Post.
“It is to be the lead cyber-security state.
And so we are a part of the global effort. “
We have also been engaged in a very comprehensive cyber-incident response to the most recent breach.
And so we are a part of the global effort.
And the only way to protect Canada is to have an effective response.”
Trudeau said the U., the United Kingdom, France and German are working together to develop a comprehensive cyber strategy, and the government is looking at ways to share the cyber threats that affect them.
He said they are all in the same boat in terms of cybersecurity.
“So we need that to work, that’s a reality, and we need a cyber-response plan,” Trudeau explained.
“Because if you look at the way things are going in this country, we are not doing a very good job at it.”
The Liberals have made the issue of cyber security a central part of their election campaign, but there has been no specific policy announcement or announcement of a strategy.
“It’s something we’ve been thinking about for a while, and it’s something that we will be exploring further, but it’s just a fact of life that we are going to have to work together on it,” Trudeau added.
Trudeau is likely to be asked about his decision to cancel the visit of U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, who has called for a renewed focus on cybersecurity.
Trudeaus campaign, meanwhile, is hoping to portray the Liberal Leader as the one who pushed through the appointment of a cybersecurity czar and a cyber task force last year.
The Liberals also have said they would push to have the Trudeau government’s National Cyber Security Strategy released within a week.
