Battling botnets: A security balancing act
Botnets—networks of hacked devices run by bad actors, are the basis for an increasingly large proportion of cyber threats to Canadians, corporations, and institutions. They mostly fail thanks to cybersecurity efforts churning behind the scenes, or our own precautions. But just often enough they succeed and wreak havoc.
Where does responsibility lie for protecting users from botnets? Should the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) be empowered to develop a network-level blocking framework to limit the harm caused to Canadians by botnets? What is at risk with a free and open internet?
To help discuss the issues, we're assembling an A-Team of panelists for a virtual panel discussion on June 23rd at 1:00 p.m. ET.
