CANARIE announces integration with CanSSOC to strengthen cybersecurity research, education

CANARIE has announced that its cybersecurity program and the Canadian Shared Security Operations Centre’s (CanSSOC) team and services will be integrated to strengthen cybersecurity research and education in Canada. The initiative will create a national, federated system that fosters collaboration and enables coordination between cybersecurity specialists and experts to respond to cybersecurity incidents. CanSSOC services will be coordinated with CANARIE’s Cybersecurity Initiatives Program, and the organizations will support the research and education sector by integrating data sources and scalable solutions; developing a national talent strategy; and amplifying, integrating, and increasing investments. “CanSSOC and CANARIE’s integration strengthens security of the whole sector, by aligning the people, services, and tools that serve the needs of all institutions, regardless of size or existing capacity,” said SAIT CIO Michael Barr.
