This paper describes a project to use a virtual team approach to add information security topics to two graduate courses where these topics are not the primary focus, using student teams from those two courses working with students enrolled in an information security management course. Students worked on development of an implementation plan involving security issues for a fictitious business case. Results indicated increased security awareness of students in all three courses by the end of the semester, based on pre-test and post-test results.
