    There are many policy-oriented books with scenarios that can help students prepare in the non-technology domains that 9/12 competition throws around (our SFS students have participated and found it very instructive!)

    Here are some starters;

    I would recommend using NIST 800-39*, 800-65, 800-84, 800-100*, 800-128, 800-137, and my favorite: 800-160*

    @warren_mack@aotx.uscourts.gov.  There are free courses available to government employees at https://fedvte.usalearning.gov/ . 

    Thanks!

    For those who wish to increase their knowledge about policy I suggest Congress.gov. Select All Resources and search Cyber or Click here to go directly to the page. 

    Department of Homeland Security also offers information on cybersecurity, click here

    I also use my phone for current Technology information which includes cybersecurity feeds. I was made aware of the new Budget bill that included a "CLOUD Act" allowing for global access to stored data. Click here to view. 

    I hope this helps.

    www.cybrary.it has lots of free cybersecurity training and preparation materials for a wide range of cybersecurity related topics and certifications. My own free course Fundamentals of Cybersecurity Leadership is also available through www.cybrary.it to anyone worldwide.

    Good Morning,

    I work for the US Courts and I am looking for Cyber Security curriculum (Sec+, CEH, CASP, Net+) to use for our court training's. The courts are very cost conscious and would like to save money by using currently developed "open source" materials.

    Any thoughts and/or suggestions?

    Thank you,

    Warren Mack

    @Joseph, the hardest part for our implementation so far, is having two options in an Information Systems Technology umbrella (cybersec and basic networking) and figuring out how to schedule and manage with only two instructors.  Our school isn't willing to hire another instructor and I'm not sure two instructors will be able to handle the course load and student load.  It should be interesting. - Our program was submitted to SACSCOC in December and we are still waiting to hear from them that it was approved...

    @Margaret - Thank you for sharing the NSA resource. I will get back to you hopefully to ask for some details on your experience in the curriculum and program development. 

    @Laura - Thank you for the message. I hope you can also share your experience in putting up the program and what to "watch out" for the hard parts of the curriculum and its implementation. 

    Thanks to everybody on this Forum for reaching out.
