Global Cybersecurity Resource Showcased for Prime Minister TrudeauPosted by Alex Enkerli
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau toured the Bayview Yards technology and entrepreneurship centre on April 25, meeting with the people behind several of the startups and organizations based in the renovated heritage building, including Prof. Tony Bailetti and Dan Craigen of Carleton’s Global Cybersecurity Resource (GCR).
“We had a chance to talk to the Prime Minister about all of the cybersecurity work that we’re doing,” said Bailetti, the director of Carleton’s Technology Innovation Management (TIM) program, who is cross-appointed to the Sprott School of Business and the Department of Systems and Computer Engineering.
“He was very positive about Carleton’s role in the entrepreneurship and innovation community, and very supportive of what we’re doing.”
Trudeau was shown a prototype “canary,” a sensor device that can be installed in a company’s server room to detect intrusions, such as a malware attack.
