Despite its clear and growing importance, computer security education is often relegated to a secondary role in undergraduate curricula. Exposure to computer security concerns is often limited to specialized courses and tracks that reach only a small percentage of students, often late in their academic careers. Effective security education approaches must engage more students earlier in their education.These techniques must be adaptable to fit the needs of differing educational institutions and student bodies. Our earlier work with checklist-based security lab modules in CS0 and CS1 provides a basis for a model that can be applied throughout the undergraduate curriculum and at a wide range of institutions.
