If you’ve tried in recent days to send email to someone at the Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sports, you’ll know that our email system is down, along with our Internet access.
We shut these systems down after the Canadian Cyber Incident Response Centre detected a cyber attack. The experts tell us that this is likely part of a broader campaign against the global anti-doping movement.
There have been similar attacks recently against the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) and the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA).
