Abstract

At present, data security is a rapidly expanding discipline resulting from the simple fact that for government, manufacturing or servicing organisations, damage to data can have disastrous results. In recent years awareness of these problems has grown significantly and there is pressure to offer more training in these fields. Numerous training arrangements already exist and a review of these arrangements is discussed. The paper concentrates on the issues of setting up introductory courses in this domain. A world review of the university offerings in the field of information security education is also presented.
