Concordia University has partnered with Ericsson and NSERC to create the first Industrial Research Chair in Software-Defined Networking and Network Functions Virtualization Security. Valued at $1.8M over five years, the chair will bring together industry and academic experts to strengthen future cybersecurity networks by developing technologies for compliance-driven monitoring, attack prevention, detection, and mitigation solutions. “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 Concordia professor Lingyu Wang.
