The Canadian Shared Security Operations Centre (CanSSOC) was created on the principle that we cannot tackle cyber security problems alone.
The Canadian higher education sector must come together to protect and defend itself against criminal organizations trying to extort money and individuals with varying motives. The cost of inaction and lack of coordination will result in substantial financial, intellectual property, reputational and personal information losses across Canada.
The emerging vision is one of a federated national cyber security approach for the sector. This encompasses a continuing stream of national services that leverage regional services and enhance institutional services all working toward a common objective of supporting national parity and avoiding the cyber security equivalent of the digital divide.
