Cyber Security Body of Knowledge: scoping the knowledge areas

In Chris Ensor’s blog ‘Building the Cyber Security Body of Knowledge‘ he introduced the work being done in a project called the Cyber Security Body of Knowledge (CyBOK). At the time, the project was seeking contributions from the cyber security community to help identify the Knowledge Areas (KAs) which, in the community’s view, form the foundations upon which the field of cyber security is built. The project’s work will underpin the design and development of cyber security educational courses, professional training and continuous personal development programmes.

That initial consultation is now complete. The input, both nationally and internationally, has resulted in the project’s first version of the CyBOK Scope Document. This document identifies the 19 Knowledge Areas that the collective community felt should be in the scope of the project.

Again, the project team wants your contributions on those 19 Knowledge Areas to help improve this first version of the Scope Document. You have opportunities to feedback both online and through consultation workshops, so please see the CyBOK website for information on how to participate. The closing date for feedback is 1700 on Sunday 15 October 2017.

This really is your opportunity to help shape the profession’s future. Please take time to contribute.
