Is your approach used elsewhere in the market? Has another organization established a culture of security similar to yours?

Thank you, Mr. Chair.
Mr. Boucher, I didn't get a chance to ask you questions earlier.
My first question is about something your colleague Scott Jones said when he appeared before the committee as part of the other study we've been referring to a lot today. He said it was important that institutions and businesses report data breaches and thefts that affect them.
In its recommendation, the committee remained rather vague. Should it be mandatory to report such breaches to police in order to minimize the impact on the public and catch those responsible?
That brings me to two other questions. They're for you, Mr. Flynn.
Since the information remains online forever, should police treat these threats in the same way they do physical ones? If a murderer or someone else poses a physical threat, I imagine police investigations are conducted with a certain level of urgency. Should the same apply to cyberthreats? Desjardins contacted Quebec provincial police in December, if I'm not mistaken.
My last question is about background checks and ongoing security checks. Given how savvy individuals are these days, should these checks become the norm?
You can have the rest of my time to answer.

Wouldn't it be appropriate to acknowledge that this kind of incident has a lifelong impact on a person and to respond with that in mind?

I have a quick question for Mr. Flynn. I say quick, because I have just two minutes and I also have a question for Mr. Boucher.
Two years ago, 19 million Canadians were the victims of fraud as a result of a data breach at Equifax. Similar data were stolen in that case. Last year, some 90,000 CIBC and BMO customers were targeted. This year, it's Desjardins members.
Can you tell us whether, further to these events, crime involving the use of the stolen data has increased?

BQ (QC)
Yes, but I'm talking about this type of crime.

All right, but has there been an increase in crime involving data stolen as a result of these breaches? Has the crime rate gone up?

I see.
My second question is for Mr. Boucher.
Mr. Boucher, in your brief, you give three recommendations to deal with increasing cyberthreats. The second is to invest in training and awareness so that people have the tools to respond. Has the federal government earmarked funding to work with the Quebec government to improve the security of Quebecers' information?

Sorry, I don't mean to rush you, but as you know, two minutes isn't much time.
Are any investments planned, and if so, how much? Has the federal government made so many millions available to work with Quebec on a training program or other cybercrime initiative, for example?

Would anyone else like to speak before we go to questions?
Mr. Guénette, you have the floor.

If there is no one else, we will begin the question period.
Mr. Drouin, you have seven minutes.

Thank you, Mr. Chair.
My thanks to you all for being here today.
Listening to you is like being in The Twelve Tasks of Asterix. Let us put ourselves in people's shoes. Their concern is that they have no real idea of what will happen. We asked to meet with you so that we could have some information on the subject. We know that the social insurance number is one measure but is there anything else that should be done in the future to change the system? Could we do as other countries have done, such as providing more digital identification, whether it is by means of fingerprints or something else?
Ms. Boisjoly, you say that there about 60 cases per year, but look, 2.9 million people had their data stolen. Are you expecting a major increase in the number of requested changes of social insurance numbers following these identity thefts?
I also have a question for you, Mr. Guénette.
The people following what is currently happening want to know what is being done. You proposed a good solution, and solutions are what people need. You mentioned people going on the Government of Canada site and opening their financial records. If I understand correctly, by opening your records, you can receive alerts or warnings.
It has now been three weeks. We are here today as the result of an emergency request. Why was there no communication with the public, immediately or within a week following the thefts, to let people know what the Government of Canada can do to help? That's what we need to know.
I am all ears, Ms. Boisjoly.
