According to the latest report from the Communications Security Establishment, Canada’s electronic spy agency:

  • cyber activities are on the rise worldwide, including in Canada
  • cyber crimes have tripled since the 2015 federal election
  • most threats come from a small number of nation-states
  • hacktivist groups are likely to try to influence democratic processes
  • political groups, politicians and their staff and the media will be the most vulnerable
