Do you want to work on the cutting edge of cyber security research for the protection of Canada’s critical infrastructure? Then, come join CNL’s National Innovation Centre for Cybersecurity (NICC) in Fredericton, NB.
The NICC recently commissioned a brand new office and research facility located in a cyber security business park cluster being set up by Cyber NB (part of Opportunities New Brunswick) on Fredericton’s Knowledge Park Drive. At the heart of the NICC is a state of the art cyber secure test range containing representative hardware and software used in nuclear power plants and other critical infrastructure that will be used to evaluate and test tools, techniques and best practices for securing critical infrastructure and industrial control systems taking into account the key characteristics that differentiate critical infrastructure and industrial control systems from typical IT and other commercial networks. Results from this research will be used to provide guidance to both regulators and industry on effectively meeting newly revised and released cyber security standards.
CNL is looking for an enthusiastic, bright, and motived engineering or computer science student to join the NICC for a 12-month internship beginning in September of 2019. The exact assignment will be dependent upon the successful candidate’s skill set and interests and the needs of CNL. Some of the work planned within the next year of the NICC includes:
