"Mr. Vigneault said large corporations typically hold the most valuable information but they try to put in state-of-the-art cyberdefences, while Canadian universities are largely unaware how they are vulnerable to economic espionage and the threat of infiltration by unnamed state actors who would use their expertise to gain an edge in military technologies. Huawei has developed research and development partnerships with many of Canada’s leading academic institutions. The CSIS director’s warnings come as the United States has mounted an intense campaign to convince Canada and other members of the Five Eyes intelligence alliance to bar Huawei from being involved in 5G mobile technology and software."
