I have submitted this comment:
"The Cybersecurity Curricula is well thought out. The only surprise for me was section 5.1 "The Academic Myth" (p. 33). This polemic against the value of baccalaureate degrees and assessment standards is not appropriate. If the authors believe that a first degree does not provide the skills required for Cybersecurity, then they should be preparing a curriculum which includes a mandatory graduate component. If the authors truly believe that "... having a degree is not sufficient to secure employment.", then they should set down the curriculum for the additional non-degree training and education required.
Setting out to specify a baccalaureate curricula which does not meet the required need seems a pointless activity. In my view a baccalaureate degree is a vocationally useful qualification. However, no single qualification will provide everything everyone needs. The authors of the Cybersecurity Curricula should not set themselves an impossible task. Such a curricula will be useful when designing educational programs, at the sub-degree, degree and also graduate levels. I suggest deleting section 5.1."
