Security-Related Research and Projects in Computing Promote Student Awareness of Security Issues
Security informatics represents a paradigm shift in university curricula in computing. In order to meet this challenge the authors will require a systemic curriculum change beyond the usual local course and program changes that have successfully handled smaller technological advances and shifts in the past. One of the novel approaches they use to teach information security at Pace University is to introduce security-related topics, research, and projects into their existing CSIS courses. They teach their master's and doctoral students how to conduct research and write dissertations in a number of areas of computing.
