Launch of A Generic Reference Curriculum on Cybersecurity

Developed by a multinational team of academics and practitioners on behalf of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) and the Partnership for Peace (PfP) Consortium of Defense Academies and Security Studies Institutes, Cybersecurity: A General Reference Curriculum aims to provide NATO member and partner countries with in-depth learning objectives and curriculum support for any courses related to cybersecurity.

Under the auspices of the PfP-Consortium’s Emerging Security Challenges Working Group and its co-chairs – Dr Gustav Lindstrom and Dr Detlef Puhl (until mid-2016 ; currently Mr Michael Gaul), this generic reference curriculum for Cybersecurity was finalised in October 2016. The curriculum was developed by a sub-group of the Emerging Security Challenges Working Group headed by Mr Sean Costigan and Dr Michael Hennessy.

The Cybersecurity Reference Curriculum focuses on four themes: Cyberspace and the fundamentals of cybersecurity; Risk vectors; International Cybersecurity Organisations, Policies and Standards; and Cybersecurity Management in the National Context.
