Canada will work with the United States to set up a continent-wide early warning system against cyber-attacks.


The move to beef up defences against an assault on key computer systems is part of a national security policy announced Tuesday. "We live in an information age where threats are not just physical," the government said in explaining the new policy. "Attacks can be launched from and against the Internet and the systems connected to it."


Up to $85 million has been set aside within the Defence Department to improve assessments of threats and vulnerabilities to computer networks, increase the ability to respond promptly and develop the early-warning system.
