(Evelyne) The 4th annual Government of Canada Data Conference took place on February 13th and 14th at the Shaw Centre in Ottawa.
(Shelley) National Defence co-hosted the government-wide event where we shared our insights on our data journey, starting with the essentials and moving to more advanced topics like useful applications, data security, and government data as a service.
(E) Participants had the opportunity to hear from senior leaders and experts.
(Gord Venner) The other thing that came out of the reviews was the idea that we’re going to have to start thinking about data as an asset the same way we thought about our ships and our aircraft and, you know, our vehicles as assets. So that was a bit of a shift in how we work.
(S) Before we go, the Climate Change and its Impact on National, and Human Security Symposium took place at the Canadian Forces College in Toronto earlier this month.
(E) The symposium featured keynote speakers and panels of leading climate change experts discussing the issue and its impacts on international, continental, human and economic security.
(S) Some discussions at the symposium revolved around impact on infrastructure and how the Canadian Armed Forces and its allies can prepare for the potential effects on the CAFs capability development.
