The Cyber Security Body of Knowledge (CyBOK), launched  earlier this month at the Science Museum in London, provides a foundation for cyber security education, training and professional practice. It will be invaluable for academia, industry and Government.

The 828-page resource has the potential to help organisations to better protect themselves. It covers the foundations of cyber security, ranging from the human element through to issues in computer hardware security.

Launched at a special event at London’s Science Museum, CyBOK was sponsored by the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC), which is a part of GCHQ and funded by the National Cyber Security Programme with support from DCMS (Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport). The development of CyBOK was led by the University of Bristol.

Chris Ensor, the NCSC’s Deputy Director for Growth, said: “This guide will act as a real enabler for developing cyber security as a profession. It’s been developed by the community, for the community and will play a major role in education, training and professional practice.”

The next stage of the CyBOK project will see the guide being used by those designing university education and professional training courses in the UK and globally.

The CyBOK project is overseen by a steering committee comprising international experts from industry, professional bodies and academia.
