In recent years there has been an increase in interest in in the Communications Security Establishment (CSE), specifically regarding how we operate and what we do on behalf of the Government of Canada and Canadians. In response to this interest, and in an effort to be more transparent, we’ve published a series of fact sheets about CSE and our work, including what we can and cannot do as an organization.
Our mission is to deliver an important security and intelligence mandate that requires us to protect information which must be kept secret from those who wish to cause harm to Canada and Canadians. In fact, the law prohibits the unauthorized public disclosure of certain information for reasons of national security. However, these fact sheets are intended to provide Canadians with additional public information about CSE.
We are proud to share with you what we can about our work.
