As a result, the associated scope and costs of successful early prevention, detection and mitigation are unsustainable by one single institution.
The Canadian Shared Security Operations Centre (CanSSOC) was developed to investigate this concern. Through a collaboration between six Canadian universities, a proof of concept to explore the feasibility of a Shared Security Operations Centre for higher education with Canada took place from February 2018 to April 2020. The POC investigated the creation of a shared service that enables greater visibility and mitigation to cyber security threats than what institutions could deliver on their own, in a cost-efficient and effective way. CanSSOC is now in a pilot phase.
