Canada's premier nuclear science and technology organization plans to establish a new cybersecurity research facility in Fredericton.

Canadian Nuclear Laboratories says the multimillion-dollar facility in Knowledge Park will focus on industrial control systems and will be up and running in 2018.

President and CEO Mark Lesinski says while there's a large commercial industry catering to the cybersecurity of business and information technology systems, industrial control systems has been widely overlooked.

Lesinski says the void is a growing concern across all industries, pointing to recent attacks on the Ukraine power grid in 2015 and 2016, and the Stuxnet attack in 2010, which caused substantial damage to Iran's nuclear program.

Canadian Nuclear Laboratories has maintained research and development facilities for real-time plant display and control systems since the 1980s.

More recently, it developed and commercialized a safety-qualified plant display system for mission critical applications that has installations in nuclear power plants internationally.

Lesinski says the company intends to hire additional personnel as part of the move, with plans to grow its team further in the years to follow.
