Determining modern curriculum content and industrially relevant research agendas are two issues that every academic in any field--and any country--can identify with. Curriculum issues are particularly relevant in information and communication technology (ICT) security because relevant topics and technologies change from year to year. In a world of rootkits, 0-day exploits, Trojans, viruses, and the ubiquitous inside attacker, it's difficult to plan course content that will remain topical, helping graduates to both understand fundamental concepts and be immediately beneficial to their employers.
