The two countries boast the world’s longest land border, but when it comes to cybersecurity, the United States and Canada share so much more.

In a Q&A session, broadcast on LinkedIn Live on Monday, May 10, I was joined by Special Agent Eric Adams of the U.S. Secret Service from the Vancouver Field Office, where we discussed the agency’s mission in its dealings with Canada.

Adams will be holding a joint keynote session with Sergeant Graeme Sloane of the Calgary Police Service where they discuss the partnership between the agencies to ensure the safety of their citizens. During this special session, the speakers will be live and interacting with the Summit audience by answering your questions.

During yesterday’s livestream, Adams delved into the role of the Secret Service  — beyond the typical mission of protecting the president.

“The mission of the Secret Service, both domestically and abroad, is the same.  And that mission is to safeguard the nation’s payment systems and overall financial infrastructure, which helps us to preserve the integrity of the economy,” Adams said during the live session.  “We’re able to accomplish this in our foreign offices by working with the world’s law enforcement community  by developing and forging partnerships and by providing guidance and expertise to safeguard those financial infrastructures through what we call a cross-border partnership.”
