Webinar | Cyber Security and the Engineering Profession
Canada has a cyber security job crisis, and it impacts all sectors, but how does it relate to engineering? As the engineering profession has a role in cyber security, whether adjacent or direct, it is time for its programs and professionals to pick up the pace. It is crucial for every engineer to understand basic cyber security issues, and we need to foster a new engineering specialty that is focused on engineering cyber security solutions.
The Canadian Centre for Cyber Security (Cyber Centre) is the Government of Canada’s lead agency for cyber security. A senior security engineer from the Cyber Centre will introduce the Cyber Centre’s mission and present the importance of cyber security in the engineering profession in Canada. More specifically, what does Canada need to do to create cyber-security-aware engineers with the knowledge to build cyber security solutions, and how does Canada compare with other advanced nations?
Brought to you by the Calgary Branch. Everyone is welcome to attend.
