Cybersecurity Wiki: Introduction and Call for Assistance

Harvard’s Berkman Center for Internet & Society has developed a Cybersecurity Wiki that is designed to be a curated, comprehensive, evolving, and interactive collection of resources for researchers (not just legal researchers), technologists, policy-makers, judges, students, and others interested in cybersecurity issues, broadly conceived.  The general aim of the wiki is to collect in one place, and organize intelligently, every important document related to cybersecurity.  At present the wiki has an annotated list of almost 100 documents.  We obviously have a long way to go; both the organization and the materials collected thus far (which only extend through 2011) are incomplete.  But we are excited about our progress thus far.

I urge anyone interested in cybersecurity to explore the wiki. The main page (including a brief description of the project) is here; and the table of contents is here.  During the next phase of the project, we hope to have experts from different disciplines review and evaluate the current collection and make recommendations for additional resources. (Some of the suggested materials for review and possible inclusion in the next phase of the project can be found here.)

I hope you will explore the wiki and offer critical comments about its content, organization, or any other matter.  Please send any comments to: [email protected].   And please forward a link to this post to anyone you know who is interested in cybersecurity.

Note that the wiki is currently closed to external editors as we finalize its initial content and organization.  In the near future, we hope to give outside cybersecurity experts from different disciplines and organizations the ability to edit and contribute content to the wiki.  If you are expert in this area and interested in helping us to devise a sustainable model for keeping the wiki up to date, either as an editor or contributor, please send an email to the address above, with some indication of your expertise and interest.  Also, of course, email us if you have any questions.

Finally, for a related project we are collecting cybersecurity syllabi from different disciplines.  If you have or know of a cybersecurity syllabus you can share, please send it to the address above.
