USherbrooke receives $1.9M for two cybersecurity projects


Université de Sherbrooke has received $1.9M in funding from the Government of Canada’s Cyber Security Cooperation Program to support two cybersecurity projects. The projects—which are managed by USherbrooke’s cybersecurity hub—will focus on protecting the electrical grid and cybersecurity in a 5G wireless environment. “The scope will be interdisciplinary and will address non-traditional dimensions such as governance, legal and regulatory compliance, and social acceptability,” said USherbrooke Professor Pierre Martin Tardif. “Students from all levels will be involved in the project. In time, the partners will be able to hire them in order to maximize the transfer of knowledge in favour of the student experience.”
