A report by a global risk consultancy warns that Canada (along with developed countries in Europe) is at risk of attack as ISIS and other Muslim terrorist groups grow more powerful.
Canada isn't one of the top seven countries most vulnerable to terrorism, however.
As reported at CNBC, Aon Global Broking's "Terrorism Tracker" pinpoints those nations "in particular danger" as France, Germany, Ireland, Denmark, Norway, Belgium and Estonia are
Along with growing Islamic militancy, the report points to "Russia's military maneuvers and increase in military spending" as contributing to the current climate.
The consultancy advised that businesses in vulnerable European countries should build "terrorism insurance programs that align more closely with their exposure."
Last week, political risk research firm Verisk Maplecroft also noted that terrorism risks were rising in Western countries. Just as with Aon, it singled out France Belgium, Canada and Australia as particularly vulnerable. (...)
The risk level in Paris is representative of a wider trend for Western countries, including Belgium, Canada and Australia, where key urban centers face substantially higher threat levels than elsewhere in the country, in part due to the significant PR value attached to such high profile targets by militant Islamist groups," Verisk Maplecroft said in a research note.
