Following up on my year-end review of 2020 story, here are some of the biggest cybersecurity-related news stories of 2020 I couldn’t squeeze into that piece. Most are Canadian, but some are of enough significance that they are included here.

Other Canadian organizations we wrote about in connection with incidents included Bird Construction, the government of Prince Edward Island;  the B.C. district of Squamish, the Telus-owned wireless carrier Koodo; Ontario retailer the Beer Store;  the Chartered Professional Accountants Canada ; Brookfield Residential Properties; the College of Nurses of Ontario; Ottawa-based e-commerce platform Shopify; steel manufacturer Stelco; post-secondary institute Saskatchewan Polytechnc;  the city of Saint John, N.B.; and Calgary energy firm Parkland.
