CyBOK to ensure best practice in cyber security

Leadership Instincts

The University of Bristol has launched the Cyber Security Body of Knowledge (CyBOK) at London’s Science Museum, at an event attended by over 50 leading cyber security experts from academia and industry. CyBOK is Funded by the UK’s National Cyber Security Programme and initiated by the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC).

The project is a major landmark and unique resource that could help industry to future proof new developments. It also ensures the next generation of students and researchers have a solid foundational understanding of the field.  

The launch is latest stage of the project as researchers seek to share these new resources by way of laying the foundations of best practice in cyber security. Over the next 15 months, the CyBOK guide along with several free resources including webinars, podcasts and knowledge trees will be actively distributed to those designing university education and professional training courses in the UK and globally. This will be done under the stewardship of an international steering committee comprising experts from industry, professional bodies and academia.
