I had the pleasure to contribute to this article on the Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS) security screening process in which would-be spies are forced to reveal their most intimate secrets.
Of course I have to say I enjoyed being interviewed about the process much more than I enjoyed going through the screening process as a CSIS candidate.
I was also for a time a screener and I can also confirm asking the questions can be almost as awkward as answering. Thankfully now I don’t have to do either.
