The Government of Canada’s 2010 Cyber Security Strategy signaled that it would develop a cyber foreign policy but one has not been produced. In contrast, Australia has released a major cyber foreign policy document and outlined its diplomatic strategy for advancing its aims. Visit OpenCanada.org at the link below for commentary on this situation by Paul Meyer, Senior Fellow in Space Security, and his suggestion that Canada should follow Australia's lead in this vital realm of global policy.
-Eight years after publishing its first cyber strategy, Canada has yet to develop a more comprehensive policy for guiding its cyber-related activities abroad. Paul Meyer looks to a recently released strategy in Australia for inspiration.
