Thank you, Ron.
Thank you, Mr. Chair.
At Shared Services Canada we take a holistic approach to applying security practices to support our partners. The functions vary, and include prevention, prevention techniques, detection techniques, and then response and recovery.
We do put a lot of effort into ensuring that we do have preventative capabilities, from both technology and a combination of processes and governments, but there is a lot of emphasis on detection as well. When we do get breached, we detect it very rapidly and then can respond and recover very quickly, as evidenced by Ron's comments on the recent worldwide threat, to which we responded very effectively, prevented any data loss, and then came out very quickly to restore the services for our partners.
We work in very strong collaboration with our security partners, especially the Communications Security Establishment. There are capabilities they bring that support us in ensuring that we provide security capabilities for our customers.
