Summary : Norton Cyber Security Insights Report (2016) states that in 2015 $1.9B (USD) was lost to CyberCrime in Canada with 26% (8.5 million Canadians) affected. The generalist, traditional policing techniques are not able to keep up with CyberCrime from major security breaches to the attack vectors of Ransomware, Doxware and Business Email Compromises.The talk provides insight on Policing structure within Canada, and initiatives being implemented at a National level.
