Trend Micro collaborates with Simon Fraser University to equip the next generation of cloud security professionals 

Trend Micro, together with Simon Fraser University have collaborated with the goal of training the next generation of cloud security professionals while still in school. Both organizations have seen the importance of this skill especially with the changing times where cloud security is needed most.

“Trend Micro’s mission is to make the world a safer place for the exchange of information and we believe it starts with education,” said Antoine Saikaley, Technical Director at Trend Micro Canada. “Both in the boardroom and in the classroom, we’re committed to preparing the next generation of cybersecurity professionals to ensure the future of Canadian business will remain resilient in the face of growing cyber threats.”

Trend Micro has also already started giving out course lectures, lab exercises and assessments in cloud security to the first batch of students in SFU’s new Professional Master’s Program in Computer Science – Cybersecurity Concentration, which launched in September 2020. This course has the goal to educate students in a wide range of topics involved in cybersecurity, where almost half of the curriculum is also made up of lab work allowing them to immerse in hands-on experience necessary for the cybersecurity field.

“As we know, the skills demand for our industry has really grown because of the implications of COVID-19 pandemic,” said Mohammad Tayebi, Cybersecurity Researcher and Program Instructor, Simon Fraser University. “We’re really pleased to have an expert partner like Trend Micro to help make the transition from school to work seamless for our students as they gain the skills and experiences relevant to cybersecurity right now.”
