The Cybersecurity Higher Education Database (CYBERHEAD) is a crowd-sourcing database, which lists cybersecurity opportunities in higher education from academic institutions within the EU and European Free Trade Association (EFTA) area. CYBERHEAD is the largest validated database for higher education within Europe and can be located on the website of ENISA, the European Union Agency for Cybersecurity and since its launch, the database has become a point of reference and go-to-resource for citizens interested in learning more about the topic of cyber and network security and upskilling further.

The Cybersecurity Higher Education Database aims to support citizens’ capacity to make informed decisions and assist them in evaluating the different training options available to choose the best-suited programme. CYBERHEAD also gives additional visibility to academic institutions and helps universities to promote and improve curricula and attract new talent.

With 130+ opportunities available in more than 20 European countries, the database is searchable through filters, allowing users to specify their preferred academic level, method of delivery, and country of location of the education programme.
