Abstract

Mobile computing is a maturing technology with benefits for consumers. The purpose of this chapter is to furnish research on the perceptions of non-information systems students in both America and Europe on the impact of mobile computing devices on privacy and security. The chapter expands upon earlier research on only the perceptions of information systems students in America on mobile computing privacy and security. This research indicates a higher level of knowledge of the features of mobile computing, but lower levels of knowledge of inherent issues of mobile computing and consumer privacy and of precaution with mobile computing devices. Findings imply an inadequacy in general curriculum, and especially in data mining curriculum, but also an opportunity to improve the curricula. This research will benefit educators attempting to improve their pedagogy with syllabi summarized in the chapter that integrates contemporary issues of privacy and security with mobile computing technology.
