COMSEC Support for Canadian Private Industry
The private sector client requires a Federal sponsor who is responsible for initiating coordination with CSE. The sponsor is also responsible to seek approval from COMSEC Client Services (CCS) prior to providing any accountable cryptographic equipment to a Canadian private sector client. Such equipment is managed through the CSE Industrial COMSEC Account (CICA).
For more detailed information, please refer to CSE Directive for the Control of COMSEC Material in the Canadian Private Sector (ITSD-06), COMSEC Client Services, or CSE’s Industrial COMSEC Account (CICA).
