The federal regulator responsible for pipelines is seeking an outside company to monitor online chatter en masse and aggregate the data in an effort to detect security risks ahead of time.
The National Energy Board has issued a request for information (RFI) from companies qualified to provide "real-time capability to algorithmically process vast amounts of traditional media, open source and public social media data."
It is asking applicants to provide a "short demo session" of their security threat monitoring services in early July.
