Are you aware of any current government challenges or opportunities that would be addressed by using your technology solution? Or a future need you can identify?
Government regulators and the general public are now acutely aware of the risks involved in sharing and storing information and sensitive data. A major component of information security and privacy compliance is to enforce a formal information security and data protection plan. This helps organizations lower the risk of suffering the negative consequences of a data breach such as fines, financial settlements, and brand damage. This can also benefit organizations or municipalities to avoid becoming victims of ransomware. With so many people working from home, both within the various levels of government and with their various partners and vendors, the need for ensuring the security and privacy of information is at an all time high. Securicy's technology solution can address this issue by helping to build out and maintain an information security and privacy compliance programs and manage various policies related to the program in one, easily accessible platform.

As the COVID crisis continues, please describe specific opportunities where your technology might support Canadian needs / government needs
As the COVID crisis continues, our technology can help the needs of the Canadian government with ensuring they meet all requirements for information security and privacy compliance and ensuring that the sensitive data shared and stored in relation to government organizations and Canadian citizens is kept secure and private. As corona virus panic and anxiety has increased, attackers have sought to weaponize this to extort and commit acts of fraud. Securing remote workers is a necessity for all Canadian companies and government agencies.
