Information Systems Security (ISS)
Interdisciplinary Focus

Shuyuan has twenty years of professional knowledge and technological experience in information systems security (aka cybersecurity). Shuyuan’s teaching has focused on the intersections between computing security, information content security and information security management, which is synergistically called Information Systems Security (ISS).

As a cybersecurity professional and educator with extensive practical experience and knowledge, Shuyuan has taught courses in digital cyber-citizenship, as well as introduction, advanced and organizational cybersecurity essentials, and cyber defense operations. To educate the next generation on complex analysis, Shuyuan presents essential keys in evaluating/assessing information ethics, and provides insights in innovation and emerging technologies. Shuyuan also offers doctoral seminars on research in information systems and information science at Florida State University. Shuyuan taught information security management at Universidad Ana G. Méndez, Puerto Rico, information technology (IT), and information security architecture (ISA) at Syracuse University. Shuyuan teaches doctoral, graduate and undergraduate courses in information systems, cybersecurity, information ethics, cyber defense operations, ethics, privacy, risk analysis (RA) and risk management (RM), as well as behavioral information security.

Shuyuan has been the faculty advisor for Cybersecurity Club at Florida State University since 2013. Cybersecurity Club creates an interactive, hands-on and fun learning environment for students to learn from one another as well from the industry professionals.

Cybersecurity Curriculum/Courses Developed

Teaching cybersecurity requires objectively transferring the body of knowledge, while subjectively conveying “critical thinking” skills and “troubleshooting” ability. Shuyuan’s teaching philosophy can be best characterized by the idea that theory and practice must be integrated and interesting. Lectures, hands-on labs, and teamwork are utilized in conjunction with small-group mentoring and periodic quizzes leading up to each significant test.
