Canadian Press: Security Conference and Anybody Sajjan

canadian press: No one wants to be duped by anybody, according to National Observer. Sajjan made the comments while attending a defence and security conference in Halifax, where experts, military officers and politicians representing democracies from around the world spent a great deal of time discussing cyber-warfare. We have taken this into account very seriously in our defence policy, Harjit Sajjan said in an interview with The Canadian Press. ; We need to further educate our citizens about the impact of fake news. When we stand up for human rights, and when we stand up ... to nations like Russia who are going against the rules-based order ... you become a target, Sajjan said, adding that Canada's decision to protest Russia's annexation of Crimea has also raised Russia's ire. Rose Gottemoeller, deputy-secretary general of NATO, stressed that Russia is not the only country using the internet to spread disinformation, citing a NATO report released Sunday that drew attention to North Korea, China and Iran. He said the Canadian government has a cyber-security plan that includes establishing the Canadian Centre for Cyber Security within the Communications Security Establishment, which is focused on collecting foreign signals intelligence.
