UOttawa, IBM Canada partner to create Cyber Range facility

November 3, 2021
The University of Ottawa and IBM Canada have partnered to create an experiential learning facility to provide cybersecurity and cyber safety training to students. The Cyber Range will deliver training in English and French, supported by a $21.65M donation of in-kind services over five years from IBM and $7M from UOttawa. Cyber Range will train students in managing cyber incidents, including proper planning, response, management, containment, and remediation. Students will also be trained in how to defend systems against current and future threats. “This fully immersive and interactive Cyber Range will create exceptional opportunities for innovative interdisciplinary research, experiential training programs, and professional skills development,” said UOttawa Vice-President, Research and Innovation Sylvain Charbonneau.
