Contract Security Program

Hosting.ca has completed the Public Services Canada security screening for our organization. We are registered in the program and have completed the Industrial Security Program (ISP) from the Canadian Industrial Security Directorate (CISD). This is a service from Public Services and Procurement Canada.

What does this mean? From completing the contract security program, it means the following has been performed by the Government of Canada:

  • Complete Organization Audit
  • Complete Staff screening – criminal checks, full employment history for the previous 10 years
  • Data center clearance audit for processing and labeling of sensitive electronic information
  • Ensure security practices are enforced for handling sensitive information
  • Assigned a security designation for handling sensitive government information and assets
  • More information available here: https://www.tpsgc-pwgsc.gc.ca/esc-src/index-eng.html
  • Hosting.ca is approved to host Canadian Government contracts for web hosting and email hosting.

The Contract Security program takes several months to complete with the Public Works Canada. If your organization needs a designation from PWGSC, please contact us and we can apply for it. We can sponsor your application to the PWGSC program.
