For the first time in their respective histories, the CACP and CATAAlliance have joined forces to create a joint advisory body supporting the advancement of the national cybercrime strategy for Canada.
The eCrime Cyber Council (ECC) has been formed as a result of the recent emergence of the CATAAlliance Cybercrime Advisory Council (CAC) coinciding with the timely need of the CACP Electronic Crime Committee for a similar body of cyber experts to advise and support them on the operational aspects of the fight against cybercrime. Rather than risk a duplication of effort and overtaxing similarly sought-after leadership and talent, the CATAAlliance CAC agreed to amend its Terms of Reference (ToR) to reflect its new status of an official advisory body to the CACP eCrimes committee.
The ECC is comprised of police experts, innovative private sector leaders, academic and government observers to work with government departments, ministries, and agencies at federal, provincial, and local levels to undertake supportive policies and approaches that will make Canada a world leader in addressing the threat and harm of cybercrime.
