Cybercrime – Raising Awareness for Future Professionals

Abstract

One of the many approaches to enable businesses and individuals to protect themselves from the ever-increasing amount and range of cybercrime is by education of future computing professionals. This is relevant to students studying different aspects of undergraduate and postgraduate computing. This paper discusses the results of surveys relating to the views of computing undergraduate students on the potential risks of social networking and on other relevant issues. The approaches used to raise this awareness, from first year IT undergraduates to Master students, none of whom are cybercrime or security specialists, are considered. These students specialise in different aspects of computing from business information systems, through software development to networking.
