When it comes to effective cybersecurity, it truly takes a village.

When we think of cybersecurity, the analysts working on the front lines to prevent, detect, and respond to cybersecurity threats often come to mind. But designing and implementing an effective cybersecurity program requires people with a wide range of skillsets who often work behind the scenes. This includes not only technical skills, but also expertise in policy development, insurance, law enforcement, education, and research.

Hosted by CANARIE, the goal of the Canadian SecuR&E Forum is to build community and foster knowledge-sharing by connecting those involved in cybersecurity to people and disciplines that they may not have previously encountered.

Who Should Attend?

  • Cybersecurity practitioners
  • Executives with cybersecurity-related responsibilities (e.g., CISOs, CIOs, Directors of Information Security, and similar roles).
  • Cybersecurity insurance specialists
  • Researchers in cybersecurity
  • Anyone interested in cybersecurity-related issues in a research or post-secondary environment
