Eyeing a solution

Educators have a nine-point cooperative plan among government, industry

and academia to address the demand for information assurance professionals:

* Creation of a National Defense Education Act-style scholarship program

to encourage undergraduate and graduate students to enter the profession

of information assurance/security.

* Creation of distinguished professorships and associated stipends

to encourage faculty to join and remain in the academic ranks.

* Creation of joint research opportunities with government.

* Creation of mechanisms to maintain currency of teaching and research

facilities.

* Encouragement of government, industry and academic personnel interchanges.

* Encouragement of joint academic/industry research groups to address

current needs.

* Creation of an information assurance training program to increase

the number of faculty teaching and researching in the area.

* Creation of joint education and training programs to keep current

practitioners' skills up-to-date.

* Support for the creation of innovative research outlets for faculty.
