As is taking place in all technically advanced nations today, federal, provincial and municipal governments in Canada are rapidly implementing new information technology infrastructures, new managerial and operational processes, and new innovative methods of delivering services to citizens electronically. The rapid advances in technology are enabling the reshaping and reengineering of governments, improving efficiency and effectiveness in ways that could have only been imagined just a few years ago. In this very exciting and challenging information revolution, the importance of Information Security is rapidly coming into focus. This focus has been rapidly sharpened by recent events such as the troubling denial of service attacks that halted the operations of some of the largest and most advanced electronic commerce enterprises in the United States in February 2000.
