The Future of Cybersecurity Education
The cybersecurity landscape changed more in the past five years than in the past two decades. As reported in the 2021 Cloud Security Report, sponsored by (ISC)2, the move to the cloud and use of cloud apps experienced major gains during the COVID-19 pandemic and remote work boon of 2020 and 2021. Zero-trust security, secure access service edge (SASE), secure web gateways, cloud access security brokers and container security are now part of the cybersecurity lexicon security professionals must know and implement. At the same time, the tried-and-true security fundamentals of confidentiality, integrity and availability (CIA), risk management, data loss prevention, social engineering and more remain the building blocks of our cybersecurity knowledge base.
