Slide1:  Media Kit About the Communications Security Establishment The Communications Security Establishment is Canada’s national cryptologic agency. We provide the Government of Canada with two key services: foreign signals intelligence in support of defence and foreign policy, and the protection of electronic information and communication. Our vision Safeguarding Canada's security through information superiority. Our mission To provide and protect information of national interest through leading edge technology, in synergy with our partners. What we do The Communications Security Establishment is mandated to acquire and provide foreign signals intelligence, and to provide advice, guidance and services to help ensure the protection of Government of Canada electronic information and information infrastructures. We also provide technical and operational assistance to federal law enforcement and security agencies. Place in government The Minister of National Defence is accountable to Cabinet and to Parliament for all of CSE’s activities. The Minister also provides direction to CSE concerning the performance of its functions. The Minister of National Defence is supported by two Deputy Ministers. The National Security Advisor is accountable for CSE’s policy and operations. The Deputy Minister of National Defence is accountable for administrative matters affecting CSE. CSE Media Kit Slide2:  Legislation and Review CSE operates within all Canadian laws, including the Criminal Code, the Canadian Human Rights Act, the Privacy Act and the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. CSE’s existence was enshrined in legislation in 2001 with the passing of the Anti-terrorism Act. It describes various aspects of CSE, including our role, responsibilities, and function in government. The law also describes the responsibilities of the CSE Commissioner. The Commissioner's mandate is to review CSE’s activities to ensure their compliance with Canadian law. He has access to all CSE information except Cabinet documents, and submits an annual report to the Minister of National Defence that is then tabled in Parliament. In all annual reports to date, the CSE Commissioner has said that CSE acts lawfully. . Media Kit Slide3:  History of the Communications Security Establishment The organization that one day would become the Communications Security Establishment originated during the Second World War. The Examination Unit, a civilian organization under the National Research Council, worked with intercepted electronic communications collected by Canada and Allied stations. The Examination Unit successfully decrypted, translated and analyzed these intercepts, and turned that raw information into useful intelligence reports during the course of the war. German Military Intelligence rings in South America, Diplomatic and naval cipher from Vichy France, then allied with Nazi Germany, and Japanese communications were its targets. The writing on the chalkboard in the background of this photograph displays partially decrypted Japanese naval cipher. With the end of the Second World War, the federal government pondered whether to continue its cryptographic effort. The revelations of former Soviet cipher clerk Igor Gouzenko that Soviet espionage rings were active in Canada helped to persuade the Canadian government that there was a post-war role for a cryptographic and signals intelligence organization dedicated to collecting, decrypting, and analyzing foreign signals intelligence in peacetime. Acting on recommendations of the Departments of National Defence and External Affairs, the federal cabinet passed an order-in-council formally establishing the organizations’ status and renaming it the Communications Branch of the National Research Council. Formal partnerships with sister agencies in the United States, Great Britain, Australia and New Zealand soon followed, continuing the close collaboration shared by these organizations during wartime. In January 1947, the new responsibility to provide the federal government with ciphers needed by a modern state was added to CBNRC’s role in managing the interception and decryption of foreign signals. The communications security role, named COMSEC, soon became a pillar of CBNRC’s effort. Media Kit Slide4:  Throughout the decades of the Cold War, CBNRC and its partners in the Canadian Armed Forces Supplementary Radio Service provided accurate, timely, and authoritative intelligence on the Soviet Union. Canada shared much of its information with its SIGINT allies and partners, especially the United States. In return, Canada received vast amounts of high-grade intelligence on a wide variety of diplomatic, trade, political and military subjects of interest to the Canadian government. On January 9, 1974, the CBC broadcast an exposé of Canadian involvement in signals intelligence. The program revealed the existence of the hitherto low profile CBNRC and explored the nature of its Signals Intelligence program and its US partners. The "The Espionage Establishment" revelations were raised in the House of Commons over the next week. The government soon transferred Canada’s SIGINT and Communications security organization to the Department of National Defence portfolio, and renamed it the Communications Security Establishment. CSE continued its dual SIGINT and COMSEC role for years, quietly providing high grade SIGINT and COMSEC, which it shared with its allies, and deriving great benefit from the resulting intelligence. However, with the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989 and the collapse of European communism soon afterwards, budget and human resources cutbacks impaired CSE’s ability to keep up throughout the 1990s. At the same time, a revolution was taking place in the field of telecommunications. The speed, variety and volume of communications increased greatly, and use of the World Wide Web as a communications tool became widespread. The terrorist attacks on the United States on September 11, 2001 were a wake up call for the security and intelligence community in Canada as well as in the United States. The Anti-terrorism Act, passed in December of 2001, gave CSE the legislative authority it needed to carry out its SIGINT and information technology security programs more assertively. Furthermore, it also established the Office of the CSE Commissioner, endowing that office with the authority to review the legality of CSE’s activities. That office has confirmed, in all of its annual reports since 1996, that CSE conducts its activities lawfully. Media Kit Slide5:  Today, CSE is mastering the telecommunications phenomenon known as the global information infrastructure. A vast and intricate web, it is at once our greatest opportunity and our greatest threat. Media Kit Slide6:  Signals Intelligence (SIGINT) CSE’s signals intelligence program – which we call SIGINT – produces intelligence that responds to Canadian government requirements. CSE collects foreign intelligence that can be used by the government for strategic warning, policy formulation, decision-making and day-to-day assessment of foreign capabilities and intentions. The success of this process is founded on CSE’s understanding of the key technologies used by the global information infrastructure. CSE relies on its closest foreign intelligence allies, the US, UK, Australia and New Zealand to share the collection burden and the resulting intelligence yield. Canada is a substantial beneficiary of the collaborative effort within the partnership to collect and report on foreign communications. During the Cold War, CSE’s primary client for signals intelligence was National Defence, and its focus was the military operations of the then Soviet Union. Since the end of the Cold War, Government of Canada requirements have evolved to include a wide variety of political, defence, and security issues of interest to a much broader range of client departments. While these continue to be key intelligence priorities for Government of Canada decision-makers, increasing focus on protecting the safety of Canadians is prompting greater interest in intelligence on transnational issues, including terrorism. CSE now provides foreign intelligence based on SIGINT to a growing number of senior clients in Government. Media Kit Slide7:  Information Technology Security Program Our world has changed significantly since September 11, 2001. The Government of Canada, in response to growing cyber dependencies and global threats has recognized the urgent and critical need to address rapidly developing IT security threats and vulnerabilities. The Information Technology Security (IT Security) Program provides the Government of Canada with timely, credible, unbiased insight and the technical leadership required to guide critical IT security decisions. As a result of this critical and urgent need, the IT Security Program’s new strategic stance has made possible a shift to that of a predictive nature allowing the program to provide relevant knowledge based upon sound practices and forward looking solutions. The IT Security Program has earned highly valued global respect and a reputation of technical excellence. It now extends its expertise past its traditional technical clients to those within the Government of Canada who are responsible for the formulation and implementation of policy and program managers. This approach encourages harmonization between Government of Canada’s operational IT security requirements with its business needs and processes. The IT Security Program will aid the Government of Canada’s effort to make cyber security a business enabler. Raising cyber protection awareness, developing requisite knowledge, and encouraging the adoption and application of appropriate security solutions will be undertaken as an evolutionary process. The IT Security Program is committed to ensuring that our Government of Canada clients’ cyber networks and critical infrastructures are trustworthy and secure.
