Enhancing Cybersecurity  Readiness  in an Era of Digital Disruption:  A Discussion  with Shelly Bruce, Chief, Communications Security Establishment 

Malign cyber operations by state and non-state actors are increasing in number, reach and sophistication. Malware is causing disruptions to critical infrastructure; adversaries are probing networks for ways to steal valued information and undermine democratic processes; and data breaches are exposing the personal and financial information of millions of users. We are witnessing a new era of digital disruption. The networks that power our modern economies are now prime targets; powerful threat actors with adversarial interests are targeting Canadian businesses and individuals on an entirely new scale.

As part of the Centre for International Governance Innovation’s (CIGI’s) continued work on reimagining a modern Canadian national security strategy, we are pleased to host Shelly Bruce, Chief of the Communications Security Establishment (CSE). Bruce discusses the importance of deterring malicious cyber operations and technologically enabled risks to Canada’s national security.
