The Cyber Security Body of Knowledge

The Cyber Security Body Of Knowledge (CyBOK) is a comprehensive Body of Knowledge intended to inform and underpin education and professional training for the cyber security sector.

The project, funded by the National Cyber Security Programme, aims to bring cyber security into line with more established sciences, by aggregating and distilling knowledge from major internationally-recognised experts into a Cyber Security Body of Knowledge that provide much-needed foundations for this emerging topic.

CyBOK version 1.0, encompassing 19 knowledge areas, is now available. Alongside the detailed Knowledge Areas, there are a variety of resources to support the understanding and application of CyBOK.

The focus of the next phase of the project is the practical application of CyBOK, and the UK Cyber Security Council is collaborating in this development.
