Center for Cybersecurity Downloads

Welcome to the Center for Cybersecurity Education. Founded by Dr. Whitman & Dr. Mattord in 1999, we specialize in developing cutting-edge security curriculum. Our programs include BBA-Information Security and Assurance, BS-Cybersecurity, and MS-Cybersecurity. We freely share our expertise and working documents, encouraging collaboration. Utilizing the NIST NICE Cybersecurity Workforce Framework, as outlined in our white paper for Cengage Learning, we lead the way in shaping the future of cybersecurity education.

Model Curriculum For Programs of Study in Security

Since 1999, Drs. Whitman & Mattord have documented their experiences in developing security curriculum, including graduate and undergraduate content based on their textbooks.  The programs developed to date include the BBA-Information Security and Assurance, the BS-Cybersecurity, and the newest program, the MS-Cybersecurity. They make their working document freely available to their peers and ask only that they provide feedback on their experiences in developing their degree programs and curriculum.


Using the NIST NICE Cybersecurity Workforce Framework

In this white paper developed for Cengage Learning, Drs. Whitman & Mattord share how the NIST NICE Cybersecurity Workforce Framework can be use to influence the development and delivery of security coursework, based on their experiences with the BBA-Information Security and Assurance and the BS-Cybersecurity.
