The Regulation of Cyber Security University Degrees
Question to the AI:
Why should cyber security qualifications be regulated and describe the risks of awarding substandard university degrees based on cyber security. Explain with examples where people with regulated versus unregulated cyber security university degrees are likely to be hired.
Answer from the AI:
The cyber security industry is one of the most rapidly growing industries in the world. With the increasing reliance on technology and the internet, organisations are facing new and more sophisticated cyber threats on a daily basis. As a result, there is a growing demand for qualified cyber security professionals who are able to identify and mitigate these threats. There are currently no formal qualifications or regulation in place for cyber security degrees. This means that anyone can set up a cyber security degree program and award degrees without having to meet any minimum standards. This can lead to substandard programs and degrees which are not recognised by employers.
It is therefore clear that there are a number of risks associated with awarding substandard cyber security degrees. In order to protect organisations and the industry as a whole, it is important that proper regulation and standards are put in place.
