“If somebody was launching missile, you can see where it came from, you can see when it was launched, there’s a trail you can trace. With cyber activities it’s in some cases really difficult because you can mask your steps.”

Stephanie MacLellan, senior research associate at the Centre for International Governance Innovation, joins Sarah Turnbull to unpack cyber security. The two discuss how cyber threats have changed over the years, who monitors suspicious behaviour online in Canada, how regulations are enforced, and why we should be prepared for interference in the upcoming federal election.
