Nation-state actors from Russia, China, Iran, and North Korea target Canada

Canada Centre for Cyber Security warns of risks related to state-sponsored programs from China, Russia, Iran, and North Korea.

A report published by the Canadian Centre for Cyber Security, titled “National Cyber Threat Assessment 2020,” warns of risks associated with state-sponsored operations from China, Russia, Iran, and North Korea.

The report is based on both classified and unclassified sources and identifies current cyber threats and the likelihood that they will occur, and how Canadians could be affected.

China, Russia, Iran, and North Korea are developing cyber capabilities to disrupt key Canadian critical infrastructure, including electricity supply.

Nation-state actors linked to the above countries pose the greatest strategic threats to Canada and according to the report, they will continue to attempt to steal Canadian intellectual property, especially related to COVID-19.

Threat actors are carrying out cyber espionage campaigns and online influence campaigns.

The report also states that other states are rapidly building their cyber capabilities, for this reason the Canadian Government believes that state-sponsored hacking will continue to target Canadian businesses, academia, and governments.
