The SERENE-RISC Digest is a distillation of research related to the securing and strengthening of Canadian cyberspace. It provides an update on academic research that can be understood at a glance, a skim or a quick read depending on your need.

The SERENE-RISC Digest provides answers to questions provided by the latest research. These answers are expanded in briefs that can be understood in 2 minutes. A ‘1-pager’ summary for each article follows to provide greater detail on the research and its outcomes. Each of these pages finishes with a very short take away message.

This document is provided quarterly to SERENE-RISC members electronically (in PDF). Please fill out the membership application, if you have not already done so, to be a part of the membership group and receive this document on a regular basis to stay up to date on the latest cybersecurity research in Canada and around the world.
