Curriculum Development for Fraud, Identity Theft, and Identity Management Content in Graduate Level Information Assurance Programs
Fraud, identity theft, and identity management is an important topic as part of an information assurance curriculum. Identity theft and identity fraud continue to grab headlines with high profile breaches causing significant losses to consumers and businesses. This paper will discuss the curriculum for a self-contained class on the topic of fraud, identity theft, and identity management. In addition, the paper will discuss the relevance of the topic to the financial services industry. In this paper we present key topics such as the drivers behind fraud, and identity theft; the regulations and regulators of financial services and other industries, identity theft and identity fraud attacks such as phishing, pharming, and skimming; and identity and access management concepts such as provisioning, password management, single sign on, and access control.
