CyberFusion Chronicles

Join us on May 12th for CyberFusion Chronicles, an exciting event focused on cybersecurity. Our expert panelists will gather on May 12th at the prestigious University of Guelph for a day of thought-provoking discussions and engaging conversations. CyberFusion Chronicles will explore the latest and most pressing topics in cybersecurity. You will have the opportunity to hear from our panelists on a range of issues, including threat intelligence, botnets, gender diversity in cybersecurity, and the role of AI in shaping the future of digital security. You’ll also connect with some of the most influential minds in the cybersecurity industry, including researchers, analysts, and practitioners. You will also gain valuable insights into the trends and developments that are shaping the industry, helping you to stay ahead of the curve and better understand the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead.

  • Reviewing a multifaceted methodology and approach that would enable organizations within specific sectors (public & private) to exchange real-time strategic and tactical threat intelligence and increase intel quality and response times while considering some of the pros & cons and potential challenges that we might encounter from such models.

  • The session will focus on the gender gap in the technology industry, particularly in the fields of cybersecurity and AI. We will discuss the challenges women face in these fields, including discrimination and unconscious bias. The session will also highlight the role of education and awareness in bridging the gender gap and encouraging girls and young women to pursue STEM careers.

  • Botnets are a hidden and persistent threat to organizations, as they can remain undetected for long periods of time and continue to cause damage and spread malware. In modern networks, botnets can infect a large number of devices, including computers, servers, and IoT (Internet of Things) devices such as cameras and routers.

    We will discuss the anatomy of a botnet and how they work including, how they are created and controlled by botnet operators. We will also review some of the ways botnets can impact modern networks, including DDoS attacks, data theft and exfiltration, ransomware attacks, and crypto mining.

  • Reviewing the developments in cybersecurity research globally. Evaluating the trends and patterns, we will review opportunities for international collaborations and assess how Canada can continue to expand its research capabilities within cybersecurity. Talk about CISCO's paper "Global Cyber Privacy - and the Content about Canada."
