Ten Years of Information Security Masters Programmes
Royal Holloway launched its MSc programme in Information Security in 1992. In the subsequent ten years this programme has grown steadily in popularity, with just over 250 students registered in the current 2002–2003 session. In this paper we reflect on the apparent success of the first ten years of the programme and comment on a number of issues that we feel have wider relevance to information security education programmes in general. We also discuss some challenges facing such programmes in the future and how we propose to address them.
