Cybersecurity is an emerging field of research and education with almost zero unemployment. Although cybersecurity is considered as a technical field, most of the problems in cybersecurity remain due to lack of an interdisciplinary perspective which handles issues by considering people and process aspects alongside technology. The information systems & science disciplines can partially address these issues with their established theories, tools, and methods and help develop a qualified workforce. This paper reports findings of a content analysis of the programs, specializations, and courses offered in 25 information schools to ascertain the extent to which the schools are ready to adopt cybersecurity in their curricula.
