Cybersecurity: Home


The Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) Joint Task Force for Cybersecurity Education defines cybersecurity as a “computing-based discipline involving technology, people, information, and processes to enable assured operations.  It involves the creation, operation, analysis, and testing of secure computer systems. It is an interdisciplinary course of study, including aspects of law, policy, human factors, ethics, and risk management in the context of adversaries.”   This guide aims to be a resource for CMU students and faculty researching cybersecurity based on this definition.  

Seamless Access with Browser Tools

Can't find what you need in the catalog or one of our databases?

If you need access to materials that CMU does not own, you may be able to request materials from other institutions using the following services:

  • ILLiad: Request books, articles, theses and more! (First time users will be asked to register before requesting items)
  • E-ZBorrow: Request books from 50+ participating academic libraries. Turnaround is typically 3-5 business days.

Both services require you to use your Andrew ID and password to log in (for E-ZBorrow, you can also log in using your 9-digit CMU ID number). You will be notified by email when your materials are ready for pick up.
