Information Assurance Education: A Work In Progress
September/October 2008 (vol. 6 no. 5)
pp. 54-57
Matt Bishop, University of California, Davis

The recognition that we need improved computer security education has increased over the past several years. Recent cyberattacks in Georgia and Estonia exemplify the new threats faced by economies that rely on the Internet. Thus, more people see the need to protect cyberspace—which translates into improving computer security in all aspects of computer use—as crucial for everyone, not merely for those who work with technology. In this column, we reflect on emerging opportunities and challenges in instruction as well as the need for increasing the partnerships among industry, government, and academia to foster mutual understanding of challenges and joint participation in solutions.
