Canadian Cybersecurity Legislation Lacking: Keyfactor Survey

In a survey released today, Keyfactor, a leading provider of secure digital identity management solutions, revealed that 87% of surveyed cybersecurity professionals think more privacy and security legislation is required to better protect Canada’s businesses and consumers.

According to the survey, 58% of respondents think regulators and elected Canadian officials are not doing enough to standardize security guidance on measures like data encryption.

Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) is a tried and tested security tool that protects digital identities across people, software and technology. However, PKI management remains a manual process for many organizations.

The survey also found that:

  • 50% of respondents cite manual and complex processes as their greatest challenge in managing PKI
  • 43% of respondents were most concerned about their ability to securely adopt DevOps, cloud and IoT

Survey results were gathered through surveys conducted with IT security professionals at SecTor, Canada’s premier IT security education conference. For a complete list of survey results, please visit:
