February 2024 - The Colloquium for Information Systems Security Education announces the release of the Winter 2024 issue of our Journal publication. This volume highlights academic papers presented at the 27th Colloquium (November 2023) that foster significant advances in the body of knowledge. A special thanks to paper authors, reviewers, and editors for their time and dedication.


Print and digital editions are available for purchase on Amazon.


Volume 11, Issue 1

This year, 14 Papers were accepted that came from across the US and internationally. The Journal publishes all submitted papers of significant value to the Colloquium members and the field, after passing a peer review process and review by the Editorial Board.

Papers reflect innovative developments in the curricular and laboratory content, with more professional context to increase students' level of engagement and vision for their future. Preparing students to defend space systems, wireless systems, social media, and software systems. Artificial intelligence and gamification continue to play innovative roles in instructional technology and design and now as topics of cybersecurity analysis. Core cybersecurity subjects like forensics, Internet of things security, security operations center management, data privacy, and risk management were advanced by the contribution of our authors.

We welcomed the Conference on Cybersecurity Education, Research and Practice (CCERP) as a separate track. A portion of their proceedings are published in a separate section within the hard copy of the Journal of the Colloquium.

We welcomed the 5th Annual Public Infrastructure Security Cyber Education System (PISCES) workshop, with research available in CISSE's Open Journal alongside the printed copy. PISCES provides a special opportunity for students to contribute directly to the cybersecurity of small and medium sized governments while maintaining confidentiality of governmental data.

The Editorial Board would like to thank all those who participated, in particular the journal's Program Committee members who enabled the peer review process.

Portions of this issue are also publicly available on our Open Journal repository.
