Campus-wide spyware and virus removal as a method of teaching information security
As Armstrong Atlantic State University prepares to enter the wireless world during the 2006-07 academic year, it is important that those connecting to the university’s network use notebook computers that are free from viruses and malware. In order to help secure the network, Information Technology students were given practical experience by organizing and performing virus and malware scans on student notebook computers. As an incentive to participate, students were provided flash memory jump drives containing various security programs to be installed and executed on their computers. These were purchased as part of an AASU Teaching and Learning Grant approved by the university in November, 2005 This paper describes this important project, its outcomes, and future pedagogical implications.
