Abstract: This research investigates how the curricula of educational institutions have responded to the need for increased security professionals in the post 9/11 Era. We hypothesise that the world of academia would respond to this increased emphasis on information technology (IT) security since they typically serve as the feeder system for organisations seeking to fill professional vacancies. In particular, we address the response of universities to the need for security professionals by analysing if Master of Public Administration (MPA) and Master of Business Administration (MBA) programme curricula include IT-security. In addition, we analyse higher-education curricula for inclusion of the security of Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition networks, which form the critical infrastructures that are crucial to the national and economic safety of the USA.
