  • Ray Boisvert, Former Assistant Director of CSIS, CEO of I-Sec Integrated Strategies

North American businesses and government institutions are under constant attack from the outside and within. It is an age of asymmetrical threats, where a diverse set of actors, from terrorists to hacktivists, have disproportionate power. It is also a world of Fifth Dimensional warfare targeting business, critical infrastructure, defence resources, intellectual property, personal information and a country's financial stability – often from converging global interests. Based on three decades of National Security experience, Ray will reveal the resilience building benefits of applied Threat Intelligence and will outline the drivers behind the internet age that has delivered unprecedented levels of knowledge and prosperity, while detailing the motives and capabilities of an expanding list of increasingly sophisticated threat actors intent on malicious exploitation and destruction.

FROM FRAGMENTATION TO SEGMENTATION – A NATURAL EVOLUTION?

Increased segmentation in a variety of forms…marketplace access, fees, client type is not uncommon in other jurisdictions but is quickly becoming a topic of interest among many participants and marketplaces in Canada. Is the introduction of increased forms of segmentation a natural evolution of modern markets, and can it help improve the quality of execution for investors?
