In mid-1997, EWA-Canada planned, organized and, in 1998, implemented the Canadian Computer Emergency Response Team (CanCERT™). We have been successfully running it ever since.
In order to provide such a service, it is imperative to belong to, be known at, and be an active member of, many different organizations.
Through our active, simultaneous participation in all these venues, we have access to and direct communication with world-wide security resources and up-to-the-minute IT security information throughout the world. We receive international and Canadian incident and incident response information and investigate specific Canadian incidents. Additionally, in order to remain at the forefront of knowledge, EWA-Canada invests in our people by implementing and funding in-house research projects dealing with leading edge and emerging technologies.
EWA-Canada and CanCERT™ are therefore well positioned to provide the most advanced security information, warnings and consulting throughout Canada and the United States.
