Abstract

Cybersecurity is an increasingly interdisciplinary field in which a range of perspectives including not only computer science but also the social sciences and the humanities, such as music, have an invaluable role to play in helping to train effective twenty-first century cybersecurity professionals. This Article considers the topic of cybersecurity from an overarching risk management perspective before delving into the role that various fields, including music, can play in building promoting a more sustainable level of cyber peace in both the public and private sectors. The Article concludes with an analysis of whether existing government incentives and programs are sufficient to address workforce development shortfalls in the interdisciplinary cybersecurity context and an analysis for how other nations are approaching this challenge.

Keywords: cybersecurity, corporate social responsibility, business, human rights, international law, due diligence, music
