ABSTRACT

Case for an ABET Accredited Computer and Network Security Program   [open pdf - 2MB]

From the abstract: "Cyber security is a losing battle. Faced with the challenge of always being right, network defenders and secure systems developers are constantly being overwhelmed with attacks by nation states, criminal organizations and other hackers. This paper outlines the need for security academic programs as a means of meeting the nations need for personnel with deep understanding of cyber security spanning from hardware, software, and advanced technologies to risk mitigation, decision strategies, law, ethics and policy. This paper advocates for a multi-discipline ABET [Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology] program accreditation to facilitate workforce hires, and skillset-job matching with a greater degree fidelity."
