Information Security is a critical element in all the organizations today. It represents a whole new specialization, and is not yet covered by our higher educational system, which actually is not providing qualified professionals, despite of the good level of Argentina in information security field, but far from world class educational systems. This work analyzes the importance of information security courses in engineering careers, the big need of the industry, and how the educational system could cover that gap, by including different courses in the study plans, and thinking of the relative relevance that it could have for engineers in their future jobs.
