Cybersecurity in Canada!

The International Society of Automation (ISA)* is to participate in the Canadian Cybersecurity Alliance (CCA) /Alliance canadienne sur la cybersécurité (ACC).

The CCA-ACC (originally initiated as the Inter-Association Working Group on Cyber Security - IAWGCS) is a voluntary, non-hierarchical, not-for-profit agile network, founded by Grant Lecky in 2013. The primary purpose of the CCA-ACC is to enhance the professionalization of the Canadian cyber domain through effective inter-association engagement and knowledge-sharing.

To date, more than 90 associations with a stake in cybersecurity have confirmed their participation in the CCA-ACC. Each of the participating associations contribute their own unique perspective on the Canadian cyber landscape.

The CCA-ACC is administered by a National Council, whose role includes maintaining the structure of the CCA-ACC and facilitating inter-association dialogue.

*ISA has developed the world’s only consensus-based series of industrial cybersecurity standards. These series of standards—known as ISA/IEC 62443— are integral components of the US government’s current and future plans to combat industrial cyberattack. They define requirements and procedures for implementing electronically secure automation and control systems and security practices, and assessing electronic security performance.
