Many view the solutions to information assurance with an increasingly technical focus, however the mindsets and actions that generate security problems are not solely technical in nature. Security specialists need strong conceptual skills in order to think in a number of different ways. Postgraduate programs in the information assurance arena need to carefully balance the technical, conceptual and human skills. This paper is a brief overview of a postgraduate program in Internet Security Management currently being developed at Curtin University in Perth, Western Australia. The course is jointly offered by the Schools of Computer Science and Information Systems and incorporates generic, technical and management skills. This paper explains the philosophy and structure for the Masters of Internet Security Management.
