Taming the Diversity of Information Assurance & Security

Document Type


Publication Date



Contemporary presentations of Information Assurance & Security (IAS) are far broader than older notions of "computer security," "network security," "OS security," and the like. The field has become so broad that it is only a slight exaggeration to state that it is difficult to find a sub-discipline of CS to which IAS is not relevant. This broadening of scope leads to many challenges as to how to structure such a course so that it does not appear intimidating in scope or merely a potpourri of marginally related topics. A means of structuring a course to avoid these pitfalls is presented here.
