“This partnership with Ericsson and NSERC will generate transferable knowledge and technologies to strengthen the national critical infrastructure that society depends on today.”

, adds;  “As the IoT grows in tandem with emerging 5G
technology, it’s crucial to assure the security and stability — peace of mind —
of both physical and virtual infrastructures across our increasingly networked
world,” says Wang. “To that end, I’m honoured to partner with Ericsson for our
research on SDN/NFV security. We aim to strengthen Canada’s leadership in
innovation and creating high-skilled workers in such a strategically important
area.”

Eva Fogelström,
director of security at Ericsson Research, reiterates: “With the increased focus
on cybersecurity in general, and on security assurance in particular, it’s
vital that we pursue research in new advanced methods and solutions for
compliance and monitoring.”
