This paper addresses the issues facing curriculum development of new and current technology in security education.
By applying “reverse” curriculum engineering correctly and observing alignment data, academic students can benefit greatly from corporate and proprietary research in technology areas that normally would not be available in a traditional program. RCE offers graduates a set of practical skills that should prove to be attractive to potential employers. In today’s competitive corporate technology marketplace, academic graduates must have as much specialization built into their baccalaureate degree programs as possible in order to be considered for the available top computer and security systems positions. New trends are developing at various academic institutions where students are adding industry-recognized certifications to their academic qualifications. Networking areas are particularly important for today’s students in security systems. This paper addresses these trends and provides specific cases and procedures for adapting industrial technologies into an academic environment. 4 tables
