Concordia University is looking to become a world-leader in "cyber-forensics"

It's home to a new common-front against computer-crime: the National Cyberforensic Training Alliance brings together players from the public, private and academic sectors; including Bell Canada, Rogers Communications, Microsoft Canada and the Competition Bureau of Canada.

They'll pool their resources and expertise to find ways of promoting IT security, they'll publish information aimed at helping individuals and organizations protect themselves and come up with innovative techniques and tools to fight cybercrime like identity theft, phishing and spam.

The director of the Concordia Institute for Information System Engineering, Professor Mourad Dibabi tells CJAD news that cybercrime targetting e-commerce alone, costs the economy 3.6 billion dollars.
