RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT
Sapper Labs delivered capability to the CAF through Innovation for Defence Excellence and Security (IDEaS) challenge Cyber Attribution of Sophisticated Threat Actors in the Defence of Canada. Our team applied technical innovation, capability development and the production of mission-critical intelligence for the challenge. In partnership with and embedded with military operational units, Sapper Labs delivered an advanced, innovative, and effective cyber defence, cognitive warfare, intelligence and targeting solution to CAF. A principal finding of this research is that attribution is a human-led, technology-accelerated, intelligence-powered, and targeting-driven process. The project demonstrated that attribution and countering cognitive warfare is uniquely accelerated by Open Source and Commercial Intelligence (OSINT/CSINT).
