Abstract

This paper reports a teaching experience of business systems analysis (BSA) to cyber-security management students. This unit places great emphasis on connecting security function to business requirements from a socio-Technical (ST) perspective. Specific topics of lectures and seminars are discussed to outline the necessity of tuning and tailoring BSA content to fit the needs of contemporary security professionals. The paper shows examples of how ST theory provides a relevant theoretical background to bridge the gap between design and implementation of secure and usable business information systems. It also considers challenges facing lecturers as well as ways on how to improve the learning experience of future graduates.
