Ransomware attacks on critical Canadian businesses ‘almost certain’ to continue: report


Canada’s cyber defence agency is warning that ransomware attacks against critical Canadian businesses and infrastructure are “almost certain” to continue, as Canada has already seen its systems targeted by such attacks in recent years.

“Over the past two years, targeting of industrial processes and ransomware attacks have become regular occurrences resulting in major impacts, including reputational damage, productivity loss, legal repercussions, recovery expenses, and damage to infrastructure and operations,” read a new cyber threat assessment from the Communications Security Establishment’s (CSE) Centre for Cyber Security, which was released on Wednesday.
