Developing an Undergraduate Information Systems Security Track
Sharma, Aditya; Murphy, Marianne C.; Rosso, Mark A.; Grant, Donna
Information Systems Education Journal, v11 n4 p10-17 Aug 2013
Information Systems Security as a specialized area of study has mostly been taught at the graduate level. This paper highlights the efforts of establishing an Information Systems (IS) Security track at the undergraduate level. As there were many unanswered questions and concerns regarding the Security curriculum, focus areas, the benefit of certifications, and limited experience of undergraduate students, we reviewed prior literature and conducted in depth semi-structured interviews of industry executives that are responsible for the security portfolio within their organizations. We present findings that can benefit not only our efforts but also other schools that plan to offer similar programs at an undergraduate level.
