Supplementary Guides Article

CyBOK supplementary guides are typically developed for emerging or less well-established areas, or for particular application areas.

  • Knowledge Guides (KGs) represent a review of relevant literature on a topic (typically on an emerging topic) that captures the current state of the field, key issues that learners should know about, emerging techniques to address those issues and open research problems.

  • Topic Guides (TGs) draw together topics from across a number of KAs, to give a unified treatment to a collection of topics distributed across CyBOK. In general, these will be crosscutting themes where practitioner knowledge is more prominent than academic thinking.
