CSE statement on Global Malware Attacks

CSE continues to closely monitor the recent cyber/malware attacks occurring in countries all around the world. The attacks have indiscriminately targeted individuals and organizations alike.

We continue to work to ensure CSE's dynamic cyber defence security systems are and will continue to be ready to defend Government of Canada systems against these and future types of similar attacks.

As a result, and working with Shared Services Canada and our other partners, Government of Canada networks are well placed to defend against these global attacks. ‎There is no indication that any information, personal or otherwise, was compromised.

As the situation continues to develop, we remain in close contact with our domestic and international partners ‎to address any developments. In addition, we will ensure all relevant information and guidance is provided to the private sector through our partners at Public Safety Canada.

Finally, we remind both individuals and organizations to review and implement our Top 10 IT security actions which will go a long way to protect you or your organization from similar attacks in the future.

Thank you.
