The NICE Cybersecurity Workforce Framework includes a few knowledge statements that are common for all work roles, including “Knowledge of cybersecurity and privacy principles.”  What are the “cybersecurity principles” that all students and workers should learn?  This webinar will begin a dialogue about reaching consensus for a common set of cybersecurity principles to be communicated, acquired, and practiced by learners of all ages – from children and youth to adults – and workers at every stage of their career from entry- to advanced-levels.

In this talk the Information Security Practice Principles (ISPPs), a product of the Indiana University Center for Applied Cybersecurity Research (IU CACR), will be introduced. Researched and developed by an interdisciplinary team of technologists, researchers, and lawyers, the ISPPs are designed to help people communicate and think critically about cybersecurity, regardless of whether they have prior technical security experience. The speakers will discuss the research effort that “uncovered” the seven ISPPs, the core workings and applications of each, and how they are being used.
