With an increasing number of malicious attacks, cyber security has gained a lot of importance in recent times. This is a very vast area to study and there are many learning resources available for the same. However, if you are looking for a single comprehensive resource for learning cyber security then you must refer to the Cyber Security Body of Knowledge (CyBOK). The CyBOK project is developing a guide to the body of knowledge by distilling knowledge from major internationally-recognized experts. University of Bristol’s Professor Awais Rashid is leading this project along with other leading cyber security experts – such as Prof Andrew Martin, Prof Steve Schneider and Dr Yulia Cherdantseva.
