A survey of college students from both IS and CS programs was undertaken to understand student recognition and awareness of information security issues in course learning. Comparisons will be made for students before and after taking the security class as well as between the two different majors. The results of the study will demonstrate possible differences in perceptions between students of two majors, and identify security issues which have not been identified so that students and institutions are able to improve academic achievements by better tailored security curriculum and training. The findings will also provide feedback to future employers of the students.
