The National CIO Sub-Committee on Information Protection (NCSIP) enables participating
governments to exchange information, policies, security awareness
program practices and architecture initiatives related to information
protection. This forum was
established in 1998 at the direction of the Public Sector Chief Information Officer’s Council (PSCIOC) representing all federal,
provincial and territorial governments and the Municipal Information Systems Association (MISA).
The objectives of the NCSIP are:
- To exchange information, share best practices and recommend national
and provincial goals, programs and priorities on Information
- To jointly create, develop and support operational procedures and
automated tools to insure that all jurisdictions in Canada maintain the
highest standards of information infrastructure protection.
