Over the past 40 years, the security industry has evolved to an almost unrecognizable point.
The McAfee Canadian Security Operations Roadshow, which made a  stop in Toronto recently, offered perspectives from Stephen Jou, chief technology officer at Interset; Jason Rolleston, McAfee’s VP and general manager, security intelligence and analytics; and Brian Brown, McAfee’s enterprise technical specialist. Together, they discussed how security operations teams can adapt to an increasingly volatile threat landscape.
In the wake of the Toronto van attack on April 23, which killed 10 people and injured 16 others, Phil Gurski, president and CEO of Borealis Threat and Risk Consulting, and former senior strategic analyst at CSIS, maintains that “there’s nothing to suggest it is a terrorist attack.”

Jodie Wallis, who leads Accenture’s artificial intelligence practice in Canada, is the co-host of “The AI Effect,” a five-episode podcast mini-series exploring AI in Canada. The series, also co-hosted by journalist Amanda Lang, features interviews with experts in AI, including academics, policy makers and business leaders.

According to one expert, “there’s nothing to suggest” the vehicular attack that occurred in Toronto on April 23 is “a terrorist attack.”
“Speculation at this point is actually going to be very unhelpful,” says Dr. Satyamoorthy Kabilan, director of national security and strategic foresight at the Conference Board of Canada, in response to reports that a van had hit eight to ten pedestrians at Yonge and Finch in North Toronto around 1:30 p.m. on Monday.
On March 22, Detective Constable Kenrick Bagnall of the Computer Cyber Crime Intelligence Services of Toronto Police spoke at the ASIS Toronto Chapter’s student appreciation event about cybercrime and social media.
