As the cyber landscape develops, so too do cybersecurity threats—both from states and non-state actors such as cybercriminals. Notably, alongside the significant digitalization driven by the Covid‑19 pandemic, which led to years of digital adoption being achieved in mere weeks, there was a 600 per cent increase in malicious emails attempting to exploit the growing digital dependency.1 Computational propaganda—such as the use of cyber-influence operations and the spreading of disinformation—by state and non-state actors also increased around the globe.2 Growing geopolitical tensions around the security of information and communications technology (ICT) have also led states to increase their scrutiny of ICT supply chains.3
