Sixth Workshop on Education in Computer Security (WECS6): Avoiding Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt Through Effective Security Education [open pdf - 1MB]
"Naturally, information security educators play an important role in addressing the problems of fear, uncertainty and doubt. We can provide our students with an understanding of system vulnerabilities, the threat agents to whom such vulnerabilities would be attractive, and techniques for mitigating those threats. Even more importantly, our students can be practiced in the critical thinking skills necessary to discern cyber security snake oil and voodoo from sound security architectures and products. It is within this context that we welcome you to the Sixth Workshop on Education in Computer Security (WECS). Our theme this year is 'Avoiding Fear, Uncertainty, and Doubt through Effective Security Education.' The papers contained in this volume present tools and techniques that have been used in undergraduate and graduate settings. Some of the papers describe entire programs or courses, while others present laboratory activities; a few papers explore rather unusual techniques for conveying the cyber security message. The scope of our field continues to expand and this year's workshop includes papers that will broaden our horizons and enrich our teaching. We hope that the readers of this volume will join the conference organizers, authors and participants for future workshops and conferences on information security education."
