After an extensive two-year process, a joint task force led by ACM and the IEEE Computer Society (IEEE-CS) has released a first-ever set of global curricular recommendations in cybersecurity education. This new set of guidelines, Cybersecurity Education Curriculum (CSEC2017), is designed to be the leading resource for comprehensive cybersecurity curricular content at the post-secondary level.

More than 320 advisors drawn from 35 different countries contributed to CSEC2017. The task force also included the Association for Information Systems Special Interest Group on Security (AIS SIGSEC) and the International Federation for Information Processing Technical Committee on Information Security Education (IFIP WG 11.8).
