Did you know that Greater Montréal is working hard to train experts in digital security? Indeed, several Montréal universities have created programs aimed at responding to the growing need for cyber-security specialists.

IT security is a constant concern for both businesses and individuals. ESET understands this challenge and has been working in Montréal since 2009 on research projects focused on various threats and raising public consciousness about the need for cyber-security.

For Alexis Dorais-Joncas, Security Intelligence Team Lead at ESET, what sets Greater Montréal apart is:

1) Several universities engaged in innovative advanced research.

2) A highly active cyber-security community with more than 3,000 specialists in businesses ranging from start-ups to large corporations.

3) A business environment that welcomes a growing number of highly creative start-ups. What’s more, Canada is one of the top 10 countries in cyber-security.

Local research, international impact

ESET’s mission is to help users around the world benefit from new technologies easily and safely. For this reason, the company puts a high priority on research and development. “The research we conduct doesn’t apply just to markets in Montréal or elsewhere in Québec, it impacts users right around the world,” says Alexis Dorais-Joncas.  “Our company has chosen to invest in the community by creating specialized positions, hiring students and providing internships to encourage the next generation of experts in this industry.”
