Terrorism, The Internet, And the Security/Privacy Conundrum
by John Adams
John Adams, former Chief of the Communications Security Establishment Canada and Associate Deputy Minister of National Defence, investigates to what extent our nurturing of our capacity to confront the terrorist threat on the Internet should be a concern for Canadians on the privacy front. He concludes that the Communications Security Agency seeks to ensure security and privacy in tandem, increasing the former while protecting the latter.
The Strategic Studies Working Group (SSWG) is a partnership between the Canadian Defence & Foreign Affairs Institute (CDFAI) and the Canadian International Council (CIC), which incorporates the former Canadian Institute of Strategic Studies.
CDFAI administers the SSWG, which conducts research and produces publications on security and defence issues on behalf of the partnership.
The Strategic Studies Working Group (SSWG) is a unique group that is both a working group of the Canadian International Council, headquartered in Toronto with nationwide branches, and a partnership between the Canadian Defence & Foreign Affairs Institute (based in Calgary) and the CIC. The SSWG was born of the merger in 2007 of the venerable Canadian Institute of Strategic Studies (CISS) and the Canadian International Council that was founded by Jim Balsillie to inject new life and resources into the Canadian Institute of International Affairs (CIIA) and create a national voice for the study of Canadian international issues.
