A number of universities have launched curricula in computer science, but noticeably absent are courses, even electives, that specifically address malware. In this edition of the SC Magazine podcast, George Ledin, a computer science professor at Sonoma State University in California, explains why not teaching malware at the college level can have a huge, negative impact on data security. Ledin – who just penned an essay on the topic – also takes on his critics, who argue that educators either lack the resources or time to educate students on malware, or that teaching about malicious code is taboo.
