On 13 September 2021, 2pm to 4.30pm, the CyBOK (Cyber Security Body of Knowledge) project is holding an external event to showcase new CyBOK developments. Following the recent launch of CyBOK v1.1, the event will provide an opportunity to find out more about:

  • why and how CyBOK has evolved since CyBOK 1.0 was released nearly two years ago
  • new and updated Knowledge Areas
  • how the UK Cyber Security Council intends to use CyBOK in its work to support the cyber security community

There will also be presentations and panel discussions with other users of CyBOK from both the professional and academic communities. The event will be interactive, giving participants the opportunity to ask questions of the speakers and panel.

The event will be a 'blended' format with delegates able to attend in person (in Bristol, UK) or virtually. Registration to attend virtually is now open.
