November 24, 2022
Concordia University has received funding from the Government of Canada’s Department of National Defense to decrease the vulnerability of Royal Canadian Navy vessels to cyberattacks. The Cybersecurity Monitoring, Diagnosis, Mitigation and Resilient Operation of Naval IT/OT/PT Systems Against Malicious Attacks project led by Concordia Professor Kash Khorasani has received $1M from the Innovation for Defence Excellence and Security (IDEaS) program. The project team will work with partners from a variety of sectors to investigate new cybersecurity defence methods that can be used on naval vessels and design a detection system. “We will be looking at means to counter these key, emerging disruptive technologies,” said Khorasani. “This is a challenge the government has recognized requires the development of novel approaches.” Journal de Montréal | Concordia (QC)
