Abstract

Higher education is increasingly called upon to enhance cyber education, including hands-on "experiential"training. The good news is that additional tools and techniques are becoming more available, both in-house and through third parties, to provide cyber training environments and simulations at various features and price points. However, the training thus far has only focused on "traditional"Cybersecurity that lightly touches on wireless in undergraduate and master's degree programs, and certifications. The purpose of this research is to identify and recognize nascent cyber training emphasizing a broader spectrum of wireless security and encourage curricular development that includes critical experiential training. Experiential wireless security training is important to keep pace with the growth in wireless communication mediums and associated Internet of Things (IoT) and Cyber Physical System (CPS) applications. Cyber faculty at a university offering undergraduate and master's Cybersecurity degrees authored this paper; both degrees are offered to resident as well as online students.
