The Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS) is Canada's national intelligence service which is responsible for collecting, analyzing, reporting and publishing intelligence on threats to Canada's national security. The CSIS official warns terrorists a real threat to Canada.
Lone-wolf terrorists, cyber thieves and meddling foreign states are among the biggest threats to Canada, a top spy official has warned in a rare public speech.
“The threat is not just one of foreign terrorists invading our borders, but of violent extremists developing from within,” Andy Ellis, an assistant director of the Canadian Security Intelligence Service, told a security conference in Ottawa on Wednesday.
But he added that CSIS is going abroad to counter threats, and continues to dispatch spies to Afghanistan.
