When Regis University created the eSecurity curriculum in 2003, the lessons were pertinent to the then-current threats. Although the curriculum has slightly changed since then, the courses needed a major facelift to meet the ever changing cyber threats. The question of can Information Assurance courses at Regis University be refreshed to include virtual labs so they are based on ethical standards will be answered in this paper. Utilizing the Design Science methodology and incorporating Bloom"â„¢s Taxonomy and the Jesuit educational approach, curriculum was identified and developed for the classroom and online students. By working with the Regis Distance Learning department, the thesis project was submitted for publication as part of the Regis Computer Networking courses.
