Abstract

The paper presents a novel idea for information security education based on a teaching hospital concept. The model envisages real information security problems from industry and government solved and abstracted into living-cases used for training and education of university students and public-sector employees. The success of this approach is contingent upon strong partnerships with government and private organizations that have real security issues as well as an active research program in information security involving faculty and students. The paper presents the curriculum and cases developed as a part of this endeavor and discusses the partnerships with government and private organizations. The paper also describes the architectures of the laboratories built to support this “teaching hospital”.
