Thursday, August 17, 7:30 pm–8:30 pm, Grand Ballroom AB
Join us to hear about and contribute to a new, multi-partner effort to develop a cyber security body of knowledge (http://www.cybok.org/). The project seeks to address key questions like:

  • What is in and out of scope of such a CyBOK?
  • What essential knowledge in computer science and other disciplines should be pre-requisite for a CyBOK?

Come along for a discussion on these and other related issues and provide your insights.
