Security and intelligence involves the collection and analysis of information, events and data to manage, protect, and respond to the ever-changing needs of our community, country, and world — but all this isn’t just limited to top secret spy networks — the field of security & intelligence is, in fact, very multidisciplinary and relates to almost every sector and industry in Canada and globally.
