Carleton University to head international cyber networkPosted by Alex Enkerli
Two Canadian universities and a technology accelerator are among 14 organizations from 10 countries that have formed a network to increase the spread of cyber security knowledge.
Called Global EPIC – short for “ecosystems partnership in innovation and cyber security” – it includes Carleton University, the University of New Brunswick and Surrey, B.C.’s Innovation Boulevard in an attempt to take the fight against cyber attackers to a new level.
The organization was announced Tuesday at the European Cybersecurity Forum in Krakow, Poland.
Those that have so far joined “have recognized working in silos is not doing the job, and there’s a lot of benefit to be had if they could work in a structured way on a global basis,” Daniel Craigen, director of Carleton’s Global Cybersecurity Resource and founding president of Global EPIC, said in a phone interview from Krakow.
