Introducing the Alberta Innovates Cyber Security Challenge

The ASBIRI Cyber Security Challenge is sponsored by Raytheon Canada Limited. This program enables demand-pull technology development opportunities, solving critical Alberta market challenges with solutions sourced through Alberta SMEs. In this case, the Challenge concept will revolve around developing and validating novel toolsets to test critical infrastructure for cyber vulnerabilities in both simulated and operating environments. These toolsets can be applied to, say unmanned systems or pipeline systems to identify, assess and categorize risks so they can be addressed.

There may be multiple successful applicants, and Alberta Innovates and Raytheon will support awarded companies to develop and test their solutions. Successful applicants will also have the opportunity to become part of Raytheon’s supply chain.
