Changes in ITC Security Education due to Changing Technology
Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin
To understand the genuine needs of information security education, we must first analyze the present situation including organizational needs, business and societal environments and the technology used as well as the changes that are taking place. Particular attention should be paid to the conditions of the new economy, e.g., e-business and e-commerce. Security education is currently strongly related to technical solutions in hardware, software and various kinds of protocols and relies heavily on encryption. People must be trained to take advantage of these solutions. Within the next two years, however, technical solutions will be embedded into the basic structure of the next generation of protocols, such as IPv6. This means that security will soon be transparent and requires no extra activities to be undertaken by end-users. At the same time, the role of groups, experts in various fields and individuals is becoming increasingly important. Also the concept technology acquires a wider meaning. As a result, security education in its classical formulation will lose some of its relevance.
