Next Steps Workshop on Cybersecurity, Accreditation and Computing Science

Fresh on the heels of a UK university tour which gleaned input from 60 HEI’s, this will be an opportunity to shape priorities for the support we provide to enhance cybersecurity content within computing science degrees and meet new guidelines for accreditation. The session will review the recommendations received from the universities, and inform the development of supporting materials and resources that will be made available to the computing science community. We will cover work that universities are actively working on today, including curriculum development projects funded by the HEA, proposals to develop an online resource repository; professional development and staff training; case histories; infrastructure specifications and more.

Manchester Metropolitan University, All Saints Campus, Oxford Road.  Tuesday April 26, 13:00 – 14:30 (following lunch at the CPHC Annual Conference)

Led by Carsten Maple, Vice-Chair CPHC and Adrian Davis, CISSP, Managing Director EMEA (ISC)2.  This session is hosted with the support of the UK Office of Cybersecurity and information Assurance.

Evolving industry need for cybersecurity skills across general and specialist requirements will also be discussed, citing the Global Workforce Study research from (ISC)2. Delegates will have the opportunity to:

  • Review how cybersecurity concepts are being embedded within curriculum
  • Identify priorities and shape initiatives being developed for the Computing Science community
  • Declare their interest in and be a part of the next stages of development

This event, and indeed the whole of day two are available to all, and not restricted to Professors and Heads of Computing and may be particularly useful to course developers.  Registrations for Day 2, and for the Workshop, must close April 19. To register, please email with:
