This paper will report on a National Science Foundation funded project designed to advance information security in postsecondary education through the development and integration of information ethics and social issues in the undergraduate computer science curriculum. In this paper, we will report the rationale for the project, methods used to improve the instructional capability of computer science and security faculty with respect to emerging sociological and ethical issues associated with information assurance and security, and methods used to develop and test curricular materials. The authors will share examples of the curriculum materials developed as a result of the project.
