Abstract

Currently we are seeing more and more universities avail themselves of information technology certification courses to deliver in the University in place of or parallel to more tradition forms of University education. This is occurring for serveral reasons none of which often have anything to do with sound educational practice. Some of the fators responsible for this including perceived need from stakeholders and the vendor's willingness to offer substantial financial incentives. This paper will explore the educational nexus that this emergence of industry based certification programs produces for universities in particular with a focus on security education.
