The aim of the Canada Research Chair in Cybersecurity is to make a major contribution to the emerging cross-disciplinary conversation on cybersecurity by developing new empirical, theoretical and policy insights on the governance and regulation of online harms. The expected breakthroughs will stem from the cross-pollination of criminology, computer science, and regulatory scholarship, as well as the fusion of public and privately-held datasets complemented with in-depth interviews and country case studies to assess the comparative impact and effectiveness of a broad range of cybersecurity policies. The findings will enhance Canada’s capacity to protect its digital ecosystem and reinforce its resilience.
