Whether you are a government agency, a commercial enterprise, or an individual, one thing is for certain: a dedicated cyber criminal has the potential to wreak havoc on the computer networks that bind the world together. With this sobering reality in mind, the Partnership for Peace Consortium (PfPC) has created a Cyber Security Awareness Survey [ You can take the survey here: https://goo.gl/EMkqeF] as part of their effort in developing a Cyber Security Curriculum to help better defend against determined cyber adversaries.
Development of the curriculum is a multinational effort, with contributing experts from Armenia, Bulgaria, Canada, Germany, Moldova, Poland, the United Kingdom, and the United States. The curriculum is envisioned to support a variety of endeavors, to include government and private sector Critical Infrastructure Protection efforts, which depend on cyber security.
The curriculum focuses on four themes: 1) Understanding the typology of cyberspace, 2) Identifying cyber risk factors, 3) Ensuring the establishment of effective cyber policies, and 4) Building the resilience to prevent, protect, respond and recover from cyber incidents.
In early 2016 the PfPC expects to complete the Cyber Security Curriculum and to subsequently make the curriculum available to any partner nation or institution interested in securing their networks against cyber threats.
