This whitepaper outlines hands-on exercises that should accompany core courses offered in academic cybersecurity degree programs.
Faculty and academic programming directors can use this guide to build cyber simulation exercises into every relevant course in their cybersecurity curricula.
Academic cybersecurity programs play an important role in preparing students for rewarding careers. Since the establishment of the world’s first computer science degree program in 1953, computer science has become an important field of academic research and one of the most important professions of our time. Today, just like in 1953, academic institutions recognise the enormous opportunity of this emerging field. Innovative colleges and universities have already launched their own cybersecurity degree programs.
