The Computer Network Defence (CND) Project will provide end-to-end technical solutions to support Defensive Cyber Operations, safeguarding Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) data confidentiality, integrity and availability ensuring freedom of movement with its information technology systems.


The solution will enable the detection and analysis of all cyber suspicious activities supporting the decision making process for defensive cyber operations and enabling the appropriate response. The integration with the Network Command and Control Integrated Situational Awareness Capability (Net C2 ISAC) and the Cyber Security Architecture project will allow for faster reaction time and support automation of response for selected activities.
