Cybersecurity Wiki

Filed under: General Homeland Security — by Arnold Bogis on August 26, 2012

For those with an interest in a wide range of cyber-related security topics, there is a new wiki just for you.  Via the Belfer Center for Science and International Affair’s website:

Harvard’s Berkman Center for Internet & Society—with contributions from the Science, Technology, and Public Policy Program‘s Explorations in Cyber International Relations project—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, policymakers, 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—important documents related to cybersecurity.

Anyone interested in cybersecurity is invited 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, experts from different disciplines will 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.)

Please explore the wiki and offer critical comments about its content, organization, or any other matter.  Please send any comments to: cybersecurity-feedback@cyber.law.harvard.edu.

Note that the wiki will be closed to external editors until its initial content and organization are finalized. In the near future, outside cybersecurity experts from different disciplines and organizations will be  invited to edit and contribute content to the wiki. Experts in this area who are interested in helping devise a sustainable model for keeping the wiki up to date, either as an editor or contributor, should send an email to the address above, indicating expertise and interest.

That website for the wiki is: http://cyber.law.harvard.edu/cybersecurity/Main_Page

Looks like a great idea. I like the layout – easy to use and useful content.

Provides a useful example of a knowledge base in emergency management, something I have been interested in for a long time.
