VICTORIA – The head of British Columbia’s public service says there’s high confidence that cybersecurity attacks targeting the provincial government’s networks were conducted by a state or state-sponsored actor.

Shannon Salter says there’s no evidence sensitive information was compromised in the incidents that were revealed by Premier David Eby on Wednesday.

Eby had called the attacks “sophisticated” and Solicitor General Mike Farnworth said later that police were involved in the investigation.

More coming.
