Abstract :

Abstract The cybersecurity profession is composed of recognized occupations accepted both nationally and internationally. Little effort has taken place to formally define the cybersecurity profession, although significant work focuses on cybersecurity task identification. Formal recognition of several professions, including cybersecurity, occurs through ISO and ANSI treaty, a treaty derived from US Legislative authority granted by the US Constitution. Analysis of current treaties and constitutional authority provides a basis for understanding, recognizing, and legalizing existing professions. This study focuses on identifying underlying contributions which provide a solid legal foundation for recognition of the multiple professions including cybersecurity in the US, without identifying individual skill sets belonging to the major technology branches of the governing technology associations. Index Terms: US constitutional powers, defining the cybersecurity profession, legalizing professions
