The Canadian Shared Security Operations Centre (CanSSOC) project was developed to investigate this concern. Through a collaboration between six Canadian universities, a proof of concept to explore the feasibility of a Shared Security Operations Centre for higher education with Canada is currently underway. CanSSOC will investigate the creation of a shared service that enables greater visibility and mitigation to cyber security threats than what institutions could deliver on their own, in a cost-efficient and effective way.
