Top Universities For Studying Cybersecurity In Canada

Internet security and data protection

Cybersecurity is one of the trickiest and most challenging topics in this era. It is an application of different technologies, processes, and how a system, network, or device can be protected from cyber-attacks. Cybersecurity is to reduce the risk of cyber-attacks and protect all the unauthorized processing and networks as well as all the technologies. Educating and training about the same is the need of the hour. In a study, it was reported that 3.5 million unfilled cybersecurity positions because of the lack of exposure to children, and this leaves the public, private sectors, and government very vulnerable.

Here is a list of colleges and universities in Canada where you can study cybersecurity from:

  1. Concordia University
    The degree of engineering in information systems security at Concordia university trains a student to design, implement and manage various security of real-life information systems. With theories and practice, you will come across to examining what the modern and current security information systems are. You will also be granted access to all the state-of-the-art level laboratories and also research centers. Some popular projects include models of the quantitative network and its vulnerabilities, analysis, and the design of the specific stream ciphers, along with the evaluation of the security software.
  2. University Of New Brunswick
    Canadian Institute for cybersecurity here is about 20+ years old and known for security innovations and talent development which helps to provide a one-year master’s degree in applied cybersecurity. The main motto of the university is to train students so that they can become cybersecurity experts. A few of the topics covered in the program are advanced data communication and networking, cryptanalysis and database security, foundations of privacy, software security, digital forensics elective, and capstone projects, along with these many more such topics.
  3. Ontario Tech University
    At Ontario Tech University, the master of information technology security program is a basic graduate program that helps a student work at a high-demanding IT security firm and the industry.

  4. York University
    The course at York University offers skills and knowledge to the students and allows them to learn through theories, principles, practices, and different technologies of cybersecurity. The courses focus on important technical materials which help to develop secure and effective cybersecurity decisions along with addressing the issues like trust and reputation, cryptography, network security, malware, and intrusion detection, and also the development of high-assurance systems. The course here prepares you to become a better researcher, make a good career for yourself and help you enhance the skills required in the profession.
  5. University Of Winnipeg
    At the University of Winnipeg, the network security program is offered in partnership with the Manitoba Institute of Trades and technology. To acquire the IT security skills, the university helps you grab those and get you a hands-on learning experience in their state art laboratories. The diploma program is made in such a way that it blends perfectly with contrasting elements, which are hands-on learning and theoretical/conceptual learning about IT. After graduating from here, you will have brief knowledge about security solutions, designs, working on protocols, and many similar topics.
