Two postsecondary institutions have struck partnerships in the past week to increase the number of cybersecurity professionals. The Calgary Police Service and the University of Calgary’s Faculty of Science partnered to create the Canadian Cyber Assessment Training and Experimentation Centre (CATE). CATE provides a safe place for experimentation and research so students can learn how to respond to and defend against cybersecurity threats, as well as a platform for police investigations. The British Columbia Institute of Technology and Coding for Veterans have launched a micro-credential that will train veterans in cybersecurity. The Microcredential in Industrial Networking for Cybersecurity Professionals is designed to further veterans’ knowledge in cybersecurity so that they are prepared to protect critical infrastructure.
