Ottawa, ON...CATAAlliance, Canada’s One Voice for Innovation lobby group has announced that its new Advocates-for-Change Caucus, a crowdsourced 1,480 member activist group, has been mobilized to reach out to decision makers at all levels, in order to help advance the Alliance’s advocacy calling for all political parties to adopt incentives that share the cost of implementing new and improved cybersecurity measures by Canadian business.
According to CATA CEO, John Reid, and CATA Research Director, Jean-Guy Rens, ” This policy incentive would allow Canadian based companies to recoup a percentage of the cost of their investment in cybersecurity technologies and services. Canadian firms are estimated to have spent $14 Billion last year on cybersecurity. Done right, this sharing of cost should help to increase the number of firms getting serious about security. In addition if focused on Canadian sourced solutions, it would also stimulate the growth of domestic suppliers, vying for local and global markets.”
