OTTAWA -- The watchdog that monitors the Canadian Security Intelligence Service says CSIS must do more to ensure insiders don't lose, steal or leak secret material.
The Security Intelligence Review Committee says it found shortcomings in the spy service's training, investigation and record-keeping practices intended to manage so-called insider threats.
In its annual report tabled today, the review committee says concern about such threats has grown due to recent breaches by intelligence employees in the United States and Canada.
The committee found insufficient training, gaps in policy and procedures, and a lack of managerial feedback for those working on internal security investigations.
It also concluded policy and procedures governing internal probes were unclear.
In addition, the committee found CSIS did not properly document decision making about investigations.
