Abstract

How to better achieve secure and correctly functioning software systems, regardless of their origins, application domain, or operational environments? Engaging a knowledgeable team of educators to develop curricula, courses, and other materials for the discipline of software assurance is but the start. If we build it, will they come? In this paper, I explore strategies this team of educators used to encourage the community of computing educators to adopt software assurance curricula.
