The Concordia Institute of Aerospace Design and Innovation (CIADI) and the Gina Cody School of Engineering and Computer Science's Security Research Centre are delighted to invite you to the first ever Aerospace meets Cybersecurity Forum and Cocktail event, held at Concordia University in downtown Montreal.
