The CSE Problem Book

Welcome to the pilot of the Cyber Security Education (CSE) Problem Book

This resource has been established as a central hub through which the CSE community can share, define, scope, classify and mitigate problems in cyber security education.

The operational domain for cyber security education is continually evolving, as are the technologies, practices and processes that must be taught. The domain is complex. It has multifarious problems that sustain multifarious consequences, ranging from relatively minor, to critical.

What are the high level domains that define the scope of the CSE problem book?





NOTE: ACE-CSE institutions can use use these domains as a guide for classifying funding applications.

Problem book themes that align to some or all of the high level domains.
