Highlight/Context

The spy agency in question is the Communications Security Establishment (CSE), Canada’s equivalent of the US’s NSA and the UK’s GCHQ. Along with those two agencies, the Australian Signals Directorate and New Zealand’s Government Communications Security Bureau, it is believed to form ECHELON, the so-called Five Eyes of signals intelligence (SIGINT).




Toronto Star:

An employee at the Communications Security Establishment was suspended after unauthorized and potentially unlawful research that created a security risk for the spy agency.

The 2014 incident was included in more than 100 pages of heavily-censored labour relations documents — detailing everything from CSE staff snooping on each other, to employees watching pornography at work, to pranks that went too far.

The documents, stamped “Top Secret” and obtained under access to information law, give context to the relatively few formal reprimands issued by CSE, the agency responsible for electronic espionage and defending government networks from attack or infiltration.
