Abstract

This article investigates the opportunities and challenges of cybersecurity for information systems (IS) programs and proposes a curriculum structure of cybersecurity track for IS programs. The study has collected data from eighty-two course websites of thirteen institutions at the graduate level and sixteen institutions at the undergraduate level as well as twenty descriptions of cybersecurity jobs posted on the internet. The collected qualitative data has been analyzed from the from the perspective of IS education. The findings indicate that the topics of cybersecurity management and essential cybersecurity technology are relevant to the IS discipline. The article suggests that these topics can be the components of two cybersecurity courses offered by IS programs to meet the demands and challenges of cybersecurity.
