A Canadian Snowden? CSE warns of “insider threats”

OTTAWA—Canada’s electronic spy agency is worried about a Canadian Edward Snowden.

The Communications Security Establishment began educating new employees and existing staff about “insider threats” in 2013, according to documents obtained by the Star.

The crackdown on “unauthorized disclosures” was tied directly to the whistleblower Snowden, who pulled back the curtain on a pervasive electronic spying apparatus in the United States and its Five Eyes partners, including CSE in Canada.

    I’m less worried about a snowden than I am about someone tipping off isis or some other terror group. Not that snowden didn’t do that it’s just that he did it publicly and so we knew we had been compromised.

    • We’re so touchy feely we’ve likely long been compromised.
