The ACM/IEEE Computing Curriculum 2013 is a community effort with representation from Academia and industry to outline curricular recommendations for undergraduate Computer Science degree programs. The effort began in 1968 [1] and conducts a complete review every ten years. The previous complete review was completed in 2001. [2] The current 2013 review is being developed to incorporate rapidly changing topics as technology and the world’s use of technology evolves; however must do so within the curricular constraints of a complete undergraduate curriculum. The construction of the CS2013 is due for completion in December 2013. This effort describes the architecture of CS2013 and the details of the creation of a new knowledge area for Information Assurance and Security in the CS2013 computing curriculum.
