The Council of Professors and Heads of Computing (CPHC) and (ISC)2 is planning a series of half-day workshops (hosted with the support of the UK Government Office of Cybersecurity and Information Assurance & BCS, the Chartered Institute for IT) to support the development of cybersecurity curriculum within computing science degrees.
Developed to support new guidance for cybersecurity now referenced within revised accreditation guidelines from BCS, these will be an opportunity to both delve into topic specific areas and learn from the experience of colleagues.
These sessions will introduce the new content supporting accreditation, highlight available resources and support the writing and delivery of curriculum. We will also work to collate experience as higher education institutes prepare for course accreditation in 2016 and 2017. Outcomes will be used to inform ongoing update of the Principals and Outcomes initially published with the revision of BCS guidelines last June. Several regional workshops are planned to allow sessions small enough for interactive discussion and a choice of dates.
