Research Conference

ICWD is the host of the annual Conference on Cybersecurity Education, Research and Practice (CCERP).  This event, held in the Fall at KSU, brings together traditional academic research as well as industry presentations on topics of interest to faculty members teaching and researching in cybersecurity.

Research Journal

The institute also sponsors the biannual Journal of Cybersecurity Education, Research and Practices (JCERP), an online peer-reviewed journal promoting scholarship among faculty teaching and researching Cybersecurity topics. JCERP seeks to collect and publish high-quality research, perspective, and best practice articles on the understanding, investigation, conduct and instruction of security related topics written specifically for an academic audience. JCERP is published twice annually, typically in June (Spring Edition) and December (Fall Edition). 

The Journal’s digital commons site is available here.
