Abstract

The authors examine the need to provide basic information security and cyber ethics training for all university students, not just those pursuing an information security-related degree. The authors also discuss the need to include ethical hacking, as part of an emphasis on cyber ethics, into information security degree programs. Both of these topics are discussed within the context of a new category of cyber crime, a Personal Denial of Service Attack (PDOS) that the authors have identified, along with other types of cyber crime, that are endemic to university campuses.
