No charge to Members of the House of Commons, Senators and Media. All others $25.

 Although cyber security regularly makes news headlines, the resulting discussions often fail to make crucial distinctions between cyber-crime, cyber-espionage and cyber-attack.  This presentation will focus on the technology and methods used in cyber-attacks. Although these attacks happen in the virtual setting of computer networks, the consequences may be felt in physical settings, such as industrial facilities. Cyber-attacks can also disrupt our approach to national defence, since the targets could be commercial or public systems such as power grids, which are not directly under military or government control. Protecting ourselves from such threats will call for a new strategy, one that places well informed and well trained people at the forefront of safeguarding our economy and society.


Dr. Scott Knight is Professor and Head of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the Royal Military College. He joined the faculty in 2000 after 21 years in the Canadian Air Force, where he started as a pilot and then moved into work on computer systems and network engineering. Dr. Knight founded the RMC Computer Security Laboratory, which focuses on computer network defence and support to information operations.
