The Human-Centric Cybersecurity Summer Report Project brings together postgraduate students across Canada to work with our private and public partners. Together, the teams produce reports analyzing wicked cybersecurity problems through a transdisciplinary lens.
This project provides students with an opportunity to learn, improve skills, access mentors, work with industry and government partners and experience the practice of research, all while advancing the greater understanding of cybersecurity for the benefit of the Canadian cybersecurity ecosystem.
Each year the project focuses on important topics and questions as raised by the membership of the HC2P. The reports generated are provided to allow organizations and individuals to tap into human-centric research and the next wave of Canadian talent.
