Universities have only recently created an undergraduate course in information security (or related topics) but few have implemented an emphasis or comprehensive program at the undergraduate level. This article explores the creation of an undergraduate emphasis in information security at Weber State University (WSU) within the John B. Goddard School of Business and Economics (JGSBE) that is designed to train students in the skills necessary to implement and manage security. Specifically, the article discusses the skill sets for security management, the lab requirements for the courses in this emphasis and the incorporation of legal elements in the curriculum.
