Title

The Development of a General Education Privacy and Security Course for Undergraduates

Abstract

To keep pace with contemporary threats, higher education institutions should consider offering general education courses that enhance security awareness across the institution. The ubiquitous nature of highly invasive technology has also warranted a strong demand for personal privacy. This research-in-progress paper addresses the personal, professional, and financial benefits of security awareness courses. In addition, this paper proposes a theoretical course structure and content. Beneficial course topics such as threat modeling, surveillance mitigation, account management, and reducing your online footprint are discussed. Moreover, the use of multimedia to relate this information to students is highlighted.
