Canada Requests Info on Software Platforms for Cyber Defense Project

The Defensive Cyber Operations-Decision Support Project seeks to consult industry members on the availability of commercial cyber products that can aid the effort, according to a tender notice published Friday.

Public Works and Government Services Canada will gather and use industry feedback to facilitate development of requirements, internal planning and approval processes for a potential contract solicitation.
