in Computer
Science, Specialty
Track "Security and

that
provides broad knowledge on decision making in information security
problems, risk management, policies and procedures, and foundation

Cyber Security
Curriculum

Industry
-
Academia WG: Education

The
three CAE
-
R


graduate
approximately
200 students
with an information
security degree each year .




Each
university offers
four to eight security courses
each semester
.




Overall
the three CAE
-
R enroll ca.
1,500 students
in cyber
security courses (not necessarily security concentrators) on
a yearly basis thus ensuring that the basic knowledge is
available to a broader community, serves to increase
awareness, and in general provide cyber security literacy.
