Canadian universities recently joined a global cybersecurity network that will conduct research and collaborate to counter cyber attacks adversely affecting organizations and economies worldwide. The Univ of New Brunswick (UNB) and Carleton Univ joined with a number of international organizations in forming the Global Ecosystems Partnership in Innovation and Cybersecurity (Global EPIC), which was announced October 10 at the European Cybersecurity Forum (CYBERSEC 2017) in Krakow, Poland. Carleton’s Global Cybersecurity Resource and UNB’s Canadian Institute for Cybersecurity join other academic and research institutions, government, and industry in the network. Surrey, BC’s health-focused Innovation Boulevard is also a founding member. Dr. Eddy Campbell, UNB president, says his university’s participation is recognition of its world-class talent and research. The Canadian institutions will collaborate with institutions from Israel, Netherlands, Spain, UK, Italy, Poland, Belgium, Costa Rica, and the US. The goal of the network is to increase the country membership from 10 to 50 by 2020.
