Abstract

In this growing technology epoch, one of the main concerns is about the cyber threats. To tackle this issue, highly skilled and motivated cybersecurity professionals are needed, who can prevent, detect, respond, or even mitigate the effect of such threats. However, the world faces workforce shortage of qualified cybersecurity professionals and practitioners. To solve this dilemma several cybersecurity educational programs have arisen. Before it was just a couple of courses in a computer science graduate program. Now a day’s different cybersecurity courses are introduced at the high school level, undergraduate computer science and information systems programs, even in the government level. Due to some peculiar nature of cybersecurity, educational institutions face many issues when designing a cybersecurity curriculum or cybersecurity activities.
