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 the University of Bristol's Professor Awais Rashid, along with other leading cyber security experts - including Professor Andrew Martin, Professor Steve Schneider, Professor Emil Lupu and Dr Howard Chivers.
