Organizers from the University of New Brunswick are holding a series of lectures to initiate a dialogue in the area of cyber operations that includes government agencies, the private sector and educational institutions within the province.

UNB Fredericton’s faculty of law, the North American Society for Intelligence History, the Canadian Institute for Cybersecurity, the Gregg Centre for the Study of War and the UNB Saint John faculty of arts have partnered to present four free public lectures.

The aim is to provide an educational forum so that the public becomes aware of the various challenges in the cyber age. According to leading experts, Canadians remain largely unaware of the cybersecurity challenges that our country faces.

The lectures are funded by the U.S. Consulate General in Halifax and UNB. The first lecture will take place on Thursday, Sept. 26, at 7 p.m. It will feature the work of Dr. Nasir Memon, vice dean for academics and student affairs and professor of computer science and engineering at the New York University Tandon School of Engineering – one of the first schools in the United States to offer a cybersecurity degree – and co-founder of NYU’s Center for Cybersecurity.
