UQO launches new research centre on cybersecurity, society


The Université du Québec en Outaouais has launched a new multidisciplinary research centre that will shine a light on the relationship between cybersecurity, individuals, and society. The Centre de recherche et d’innovation en cybersécurité et société (CRICS) brings together academics from across departments to develop expertise and research on the human and organizational challenges of cybersecurity. CRICS–which will be headed by UQO Professor Patrice Renaud–was made possible thanks to a $2.5M grant from the Fonds de recherche du Québec. UQO rectrice Murielle Laberge expressed that this new centre will play a vital role in strengthening the capacities of individuals and organizations to benefit from society’s growing digitization.
