IACIS 2016 Conference Theme: The Next Generation of Graduates in Cybersecurity: Evolving Curricula in Higher Education

With the rise of cyber threats on both private organizations and national security, the demand for professionals who are able to prevent cyber attacks and secure networks remains high. Higher education must invest in the cybersecurity curricula to ensure that graduates know how to assess cyber security risks within organizations, respond to and prevent network security breaches, and write the policies that determine how organizations will respond in the face of a cyber threat.

The IACIS 2016 International Conference provides a showcase for the latest research in practice and pedagogical topics that focus on how information systems are used to support organizations or enhance the educational process. You are invited to share your research on the conference theme or other relevant IS and IT research with the educators and professionals attending the IACIS 2016 International Conference. Papers covering related academic and technical issues are also encouraged.
