Cybersecurity Faculty Development Program
Due to the increasing number of cyber incidents and overwhelming skills shortage, it is required to evaluate the knowledge gap between cyber security education and industrial needs. As a part of the course we have identified the knowledge gaps for cybersecurity graduates and will train faculty help.

About the event
Due to the increasing number of cyber incidents and overwhelming skills shortage, it is required to evaluate the knowledge gap between cyber security education and industrial needs. As a part of the course, we have identified the knowledge gaps for cybersecurity graduates who join the cybersecurity workforce.
As a part of the coursework, we will design and perform an opinion survey using the Cyber Security Knowledge Areas (KAs) specified in the Cyber Security Body of Knowledge (CyBOK), which comprises 19 KAs. Our data was gathered from practitioners who work in cybersecurity organizations. The knowledge gap was measured and evaluated by acknowledging the assumption for employing sequent data as nominal data and improving it by deploying a chi-squared test.
A lot of research has already been done in these areas, and there is a gap identified. This identified gap is used to enhance the quality of education in cybersecurity. According to the acquired final results, the three key KAs with the highest knowledge gap are Web and Mobile Security, Security Operations, and Incident Management. Also, Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS), Software Lifecycles, and Vulnerabilities are the knowledge areas with the most significant difference in perception of importance between less and more experienced personnel.
We discuss several suggestions to improve the cyber security curriculum to minimize the knowledge gaps. There is an expanding demand for executive cybersecurity personnel in the industry. High-quality university education is required to improve the qualification of the upcoming workforce. The capability and capacity of the national cyber security workforce are crucial for nations and security organizations. New cyber security graduates require a wide range of skills, namely technical skills, implementation skills, management skills, and soft skills. The use of each CyBOK KA in the industry was measured in response to the extent of learning in university environments. This course can further inspire further research and development in the domain.
