The Cyber Security Education Gap – What Do We Do Now?

March 21, 2017 @ 6:00 PM - 8:30 PM PDT

Boston SPIN meetings are free. No RSVP is necessary. http://www.boston-spin.org/ 

[Please note MITRE’s Corporate Security: Because of security concerns, you’ll need a Picture ID and any large items you bring will be opened and inspected when you arrive.  The earliest arrival time is 5:15pm: No one will be admitted prior to that time. The building is secured at 8:30pm. All attendees must have left the building by that time.]

We are still facing the same security vulnerabilities from over a decade ago. The problems are not going away anytime soon and a reason is because Computer Science curricula are still churning out students who are not even exposed to security. 

This talk will address the lack of emphasis on information security in Computer Science curricula, how CS curricula have an obligation, how to gradually fix the problem by integrating security into many Computer Science undergraduate and graduate classes, and success stories from students. 

This talk will also discuss what Tufts is currently working on to further address the security education problem by creating a joint cyber security and policy program that spans multiple departments. Additional points and feedback from the audience are encouraged to help with the issue.
