This paper discusses how news stories are integrated into an introductory course on Computer Security and Ethics. The main emphasis in this paper is on two assignments that relate to computer security in the news. Special attention is paid to the second of these two assignments. This requires that students create a blog containing links to security news stories along with commentaries on those news stories. This blog is maintained through the entire semester. All of the students who chose to do this assignment during the fall 2009 semester have expressed enthusiasm for this project.
