The development of standardized information security and assurance training in the United States may foster a homogenization in ISA training among post-secondary training and education outlets. This leaves open the question of how bachelor’s programs at universities should differentiate themselves from other post-secondary training and education programs and crate added value for students perusing bachelor’s degrees with ISA content. This article describes the Survey of Strategic Global Cybersecurity course that was developed in 2014 at REDACTED University. The goal of this course was to provide a broader level of global worldview macro level causes and effects as it related to cybersecurity issues than is presented in a standard information security and assurance course. In addition, we examine an early stage investigation into the trends that may be driving homogenization among technical colleges and universities ISA course offerings.
