Information Technology and cybersecurity educators looking for up-to-date and easily accessible curricular resources now have access to newly released e-Books from the National CyberWatch Center for no charge.

The National CyberWatch Center continues to update and create model Information Security curricula that supports the growth of cybersecurity education nationally, including complete courses for degrees and certificates. And its latest addition is five e-Books.

"Educators are constantly looking for up-to-date and cost effective resources to include in their courses,” states Casey W. O’Brien, Executive Director and Principal Investigator, National CyberWatch Center. “Many print books are out-of-date and exorbitantly priced. The National CyberWatch Center e-Books have been created with ease of use, affordability, and easy updating in mind."

There are five technical courses common to every degree and certificate that National CyberWatch Center offers. It partnered with Jones & Bartlett Learning to develop these books for the courses including, “Ethical Hacking and Systems Defense,” “Information Security Fundamentals,” “Introduction to Scripting,” “Linux Fundamentals,” and “Networking Fundamentals.” Each e-Book includes lecture slides, assessment questions, project answers, a syllabus, and instructor’s guide. They can be used in conjunction with a number of National CyberWatch Center technical courses.

The content for four of these five e-Books map to professional certifications. To request an access code, email info(at)nationalcyberwatch(dot)org. For more information, visit nationalcyberwatch.org/programs-resources/.
