Civil society organizations (CSOs) that work to protect human rights and civil liberties around the world are being bombarded with persistent and disruptive targeted computer espionage attacks, say researchers at the University of Toronto’s Munk School of Global Affairs.

And these attacks raise major issues for the sustainable promotion of rights and democracy worldwide, researchers warn.
