Title:Writing Security: A Curriculum Intervention for Computer Security Ethics
Author(s):Petelka, Justin; Shilton, Katie; Finn, Megan
Subject(s):information ethics
information security
information policy
Abstract:Security policies articulate and define behaviors, protocols, and relationships in security work. These documents also translate values, ideals, and biases into rules. Synthesizing research from studio-based pedagogy, public policy analysis, science and technology studies, and surveillance studies, this paper presents a course project to help information science students connect security policies with ethical concerns. This activity helps students identify structural considerations and consequences for indirect stakeholders, particularly traditionally disenfranchised groups. Our course activity walks students through a process of drafting, critiquing, and revising a security policy for one of three technology security contexts: COVID-19 contact tracing, network traffic monitoring, and remote exam proctoring technologies.
