Abstract:The article provides an analysis of the challenges facing cyber security expertise. The research is characterized by an integrated approach to the interdisciplinary nature of the problem. The reason for this approach is the need for the involvement of institutions that create new laws affecting the content of higher education and vocational education. Only an institutional approach is able to provide the basis for an adequate response to the cyber security picture that is suffering from a growing shortage of cybersecurity experts. The cyber security of the modern information space is characterized by unexplored interconnections between the digitized elements of critical infrastructure systems, the continuous advent of modern technologies and the awareness of the complex difficulties of developers and organizations using information systems and need for guarantee of confidentiality. Exploring these processes requires a multidisciplinary approach. They pose new challenges for all educational institutions. The article focuses not only on the effects of cyber invasions on the preparation of designers, developers, but also on experts from neighboring subject areas who are involved in the development of the regulatory framework for cybersecurity, the institutional norms for curricula in various higher education majors, and on professional education. The cyber security education model need changes. We propose new elements that relate to the preliminary preparation of teams of designers, developers and testers with a regulatory framework that maps the subject area in which the product is created. Developer competencies required are increasing. So far, they have been interdisciplinary because of the nature of their work. They already include regulatory compliance.
