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.

Scoping Phase

The project is currently in the scoping phase with the aim to identify the key knowledge areas to be covered by the CyBOK. This is an exciting opportunity for the cyber security community to get engaged and express views on the scope. A call for position statements has been issued and community workshops are currently taking place across the UK. Views gathered from these will be used to help inform the scoping alongside input gathered through other consultations so get involved now!
