Five years ago, a small group of experts came together with the aim to improve education in information security in Norway. The effort resulted in one bachelor study and one master study. The cooperation developed rapidly into a network that has since expanded to include about 40 members from industry, consultancy, academia and public administration. The field of interest incorporates creation of new businesses, establishing joint ventures, building and sharing knowledge, development of tools and best practices, promotion of education and research, and assisting the evolution of information security in public administration. The paper describes how this evolution took place and what it has led to.
