The Cyber Security Body Of Knowledge

A comprehensive Body of Knowledge to inform and underpin education and professional training for the cyber security sector

The CyBOK project aims to bring cyber security into line with the more established sciences by distilling knowledge from major internationally-recognised experts to form a Cyber Security Body of Knowledge that will provide much-needed foundations for this emerging topic. The project, funded by the National Cyber Security Programme, is led by Lancaster University's Professor Awais Rashid, along with other leading cyber security experts - including Professor Andrew Martin, Professor George Danezis, Professor Emil Lupu and Dr Howard Chivers.

SCOPE DOCUMENT **NOW RELEASED**

Following wide community consultation, key knowledge areas (KAs) have been identified to form the scope of the CyBOK. The Scope document provides an overview of these top-level KAs and the sub-topics that should be covered under each.

The purpose of the Scope Document is to seek community input and feedback on the scope. We invite members of the cyber security community and stakeholders from academia, industry, practice and professional organisations to comment on the CyBOK scope.

Improving the Scope based on community review and feedback is vital so all constructive comments are requested and very much encouraged.

The Scope Document can be found here: Scope Document
