The committee of MPs and senators in charge of federal security policy has discovered holes in Canada’s cyberdefenses, which might expose several government organizations to state-sponsored hackers from China and Russia.
Cyberthreats to government systems and networks, according to the National Security and Intelligence Committee of Parliamentarians, constitute a substantial concern to Canada’s security and government operations, according to a new report.
Beijing and Moscow are the most sophisticated cyberthreat actors attacking the government, according to the report, while Iran and North Korea are moderately advanced and offer less of a threat.
Although nation states are the most advanced dangers, the committee claims that any actor with harmful intent and technical capability puts the government’s data and electronic infrastructure at risk.
The federal government has established a powerful cyberdefence system to fight this threat during the last decade, according to the report.
However, it is hampered by inconsistencies in policy implementation and the utilization of cyberdefense services throughout government.
The report, which was tabled in Parliament late Monday, is a redacted version of a confidential document that Prime Minister Justin Trudeau received in August.
According to the analysis, governments are extremely appealing targets for cyberattacks.
“The federal government has vast amounts of information about Canadians, corporations, and innovative sectors like universities and research organizations. Cyber breaches of this data might expose sensitive personal information about Canadians and suffocate individual businesses and the economy.”
According to the research, the government also administers international, trade, and security ties through electronic infrastructures that, if hacked, might harm federal policies and jeopardize Canada’s important interests.
It adds to our understanding of the scope of an early attack by a Chinese state-sponsored attacker that served as a “wake-up call” for the federal government.
China attacked 31 departments between August 2010 and August 2011, with eight of them suffering serious concessions. There were significant data losses, including senior government officials’ email conversations and wholesale theft of information from multiple departments, including briefing notes, strategy documents, secret material, and password and file system data.
The study also includes new details of a crippling 2014 cyberattack on the National Research Council, claiming that a Chinese state-sponsored actor utilized its network access to steal over 40,000 files.
“Intellectual property, advanced research, and sensitive business information from NRC’s partners were among the stolen items. China also leveraged its access to the NRC network to infiltrate a number of government organizations.”
According to the report, three entities, the Treasury Board of Canada Secretariat, Shared Services Canada, and the Communications Security Establishment, collaborate closely on federal cyberdefenses, as do other government departments.
Government networks should, in theory, be contained within a single electronic perimeter, with only a few internet access points monitored by sophisticated sensors capable of detecting and blocking known threats.
Departments should update and patch their devices and systems on a regular basis, according to the paper, under the coordinated supervision, counsel, and assistance of the three organizations.
The current cyberdefense system, on the other hand, “has not yet attained this ideal.”
The following are the major flaws:
The Treasury Board’s cyberdefense measures are not enforced uniformly across departments and agencies, leaving government networks vulnerable to cyberattack.
Crown corporations are known targets of state actors, but they are not subject to Treasury Board cyber-related directives or policies, and they are not obligated to obtain cyberdefence services from the government, putting their data at risk; and Cyberdefence services are provided inconsistently, with many agencies not benefiting from Shared Services Canada’s full complement of assistance, for example.
According to the research, “the harm posed by these inadequacies is clear.” “Organizations whose data isn’t safeguarded by the government’s cyber defense system are at serious risk.”
Furthermore, by preserving electronic connectivity to organizations within the cyberdefence framework, unprotected organizations may operate as a “weak link” in the government’s defenses, posing threats to the government as a whole.
The government agreed with the committee’s several suggestions to rectify the flaws in replies provided in the report.
The truth is, nothing is truly secure in terms of cyber security, an old cyber security article from 2009 from NBC details the focal point at which society realized that data and sensitive information will never be safe from hackers with malicious intent.
You can install all the computer virus protection software you want, but if someone is determined to find out who you’re e-mailing, technically they can, security experts say.
And that may be particularly true if that someone — or something — is the federal government.
“There’s a lot you can do to make it hard,” said Charles Miller, the principal security analyst at Independent Security Evaluators, a Maryland-based firm that successfully took over the iPhone a few weeks ago, prompting Apple to release a security patch last week. “If they have the resources of the federal government, they’re going to be able to see what you do no matter what you do.”
President Bush signed into law an expansion of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, or FISA, which gives the government expanded rights to intercept phone calls and e-mails without warrants as long as the information being intercepted relates to foreign terror intelligence. Democrats and some civil liberties groups have said that the law goes too far.
“You cannot keep things absolutely safe,” Pradeep Khosla, dean of Carnegie Mellon’s college of engineering, told ABCNEWS.com. “The lesson to be learned here is everything can be hacked into — it’s just a matter of time.”
No one man can make sense of this elaborate illusion cast over the common man of society, but collectively we can point out each limitation forced upon us and bring it forward as an injustice to the public. In Matthew 10:34 Jesus says: “Do not think that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I have not come to bring peace, but a sword.” We’re meant to go down preaching the gospel and guiding others to salvation. This could be considered the bravest task a man or woman of faith could undertake, but make no mistake it will bear fruit in the kingdom of heaven. Stay inquisitive in the word of God, and the world around you.
A 78-year-old man was arrested and fined by Ottawa police for honking his horn in support of the continuing truckers’ protest in the nation’s capital.
On February 6, Gerry Charlebois was driving near the truckers’ Freedom Convoy protests when he was stopped by police at Besserer and Friel Streets after giving the truckers “a thumbs-up and a honk.”
According to a video posted to Twitter, when Charlebois was obtaining his identification from the rear of his vehicle, a police officer wrenched his arm, knocking him to the ground and cutting and bruised him.
The police subsequently arrested Charlebois on grounds that he had failed to identify himself, and gave him a ticket of $110 for allegedly generating “unnecessary noise.”
David Anber, a criminal lawyer who is representing Charlebois, said the arrest is “unlawful.”
“The question of the arrest’s legality is almost definitely indisputable,” Anber told The Epoch Times.
According to Anber, police are not allowed to arrest someone for not having a driver’s license. Only when the police have asked the person for a verbal identification and have been refused, they may do so.
“But the officer didn’t do that, and likely knew the guy’s name, so to me this is unquestionably an unlawful arrest,” he stated.
“He had the option of issuing the man a noise violation ticket.” He might have issued the man a citation for failing to give a driver’s license. If the man couldn’t or wouldn’t offer a driver’s license, he had the option of asking for his name.”
Anber said he’ll fight the ticket and the accusations against Charlebois, but he’ll also refer his client to civil counsel about pursuing a case against the City of Ottawa, the Ottawa Police Service, or the specific officer who conducted the arrest.
After a proposed class-action lawsuit was filed on behalf of a local resident who claimed that the honking of horns has caused her to lose sleep and other mental damages, the Ontario Superior Court granted a 10-day injunction to stop truckers participating in the Freedom Convoy in downtown Ottawa from honking their horns.
According to an Ottawa Police statement, more than 1,500 fines had been issued in connection with the protests as of Feb. 10 for excessive noise, among other things.
The trucker convoy camping in Ottawa began as a demonstration against the federal government’s COVID-19 vaccine requirement for all truck drivers crossing the Canada-US border. It quickly grew into a national movement, garnering followers from throughout the country who want to see other pandemic-related regulations and restrictions lifted as well. Similar protests have erupted in other parts of the world.
The arrest of Charlebois also raises the question of whether the bylaw can override Canadians’ constitutionally guaranteed right to freedom of expression, which Anber predicts will be “hotly debated” in court.
The actions taken by these Ottawa police officers are a direct display of their views. Surely, there are many officers that seek to do the right thing and support freedom loving citizens; however at the end of the day their orders trickle down from the top where the globalist sell outs reside. Nevertheless the demonstrations will continue until staged violence occurs, or the tyrannical COVID-19 vaccination mandates are lifted. Many European countries are “walking back” their restrictions, but fail to mention that they don’t apply to the unvaccinated. This is the foreshadowing of future persecution on freedom loving citizens globally. Stay inquisitive in the word of God, and the world around you.
