Adjusting the Military Educational Process to the Cyber Defence Domain

Open access

Abstract

Threats, challenges and attacks are becoming more frequent, sophisticated and damaging within the new and unique environment, known today as cyber domain. The article presents the importance of cyber defence as a field of study and the tremendous efforts that are being made to continuously adapt the military educational process to this field. Concerning the education process in this domain, we can identify a strong need for improving the way we approach it and a striving call to fill the knowledge gaps for generating a credible cyber workforce. The aim was to analyze and present a few new cyber defence courses and the curriculum developed for both content and methods of education for officer career courses at military academies worldwide. The conclusion I have reached is that there are numerous modern methods that prove to be highly efficient in teaching this new subject matter and military educational institutions are investing into the skills and competence of their personnel.
