About this report

To understand how cybersecurity academic programs are evolving, and in the process identify both challenges and emerging leading practices, IBM interviewed professors and department heads from 15 programs in six different countries. Study participants were selected from over 200 programs followed by the IBM Cyber Security Innovation initiative. To fairly represent a diversity of perspectives, we selected programs from various geographies with varying levels of maturity.

The report, "Cybersecurity education for the next generation: Advancing a collaborative approach" (see Resources), summarizes its findings into three categories of recommendations, as shown in Figure 1. The report recommends improving collaboration across the global academic community, with other departments and organizations within the institution, and with industry partners.
