An Analysis of Industrial Security Curriculums in Colleges

Jinhyo Jung, Chang-Moo Lee


Of all the 55 security departments in colleges, the information security departments occupies the majority of 45. Though existing security focused too much on information security, a new research stream on industrial security from a perspective of convergence has emerged. Since the first department of industrial security was established in a college in 2014, the total of four departments have been established until 2018. A new discipline to solve the existing problems and an opportunity to cultivate industrial security professionals have been greatly appreciated; however, the definition of industrial security is not yet specific, and more discussions on education categories and subjects with a focus on the characteristics of convergence are needed. The demand for industrial security professionals has gradually increasing and the departments of industrial security have been established to meet the demand. It is necessary, in this circumstance, to find out how the industrial security departments are teaching students. To this end, the purpose of this article is to deliver an overview of the educational curriculums of the four industrial security departments. This study analyzed 127 subjects in the curriculums, categorized educational areas, and employed Social Network Analysis to understand the relationships between subjects of each departments.
