Reaching Today’s Information Security Students

Abstract : Classes at university today comprise students from the Baby Boomers, Generation X and Y. The different outlooks on life of these generations affect their choice of education options and their learning preferences. There are numerous ways academics can innovatively deliver Information Security learning materials that meet the needs of these generations, whilst still achieving the educational goals. This paper discusses some observations of students in the different generations in information security courses and methods that may be used to ensure a more meaningful learning experience for both the teacher and the learner.
