Technology is evolving and expanding at a very rapid pace. To this end, organizations are finding it difficult to maintain current business practices while updating technology initiatives and at the same time ensuring the data and systems are secure. Organizations that will not only survive but thrive are those which embrace the technological changes as they occur, and at the same time, implement measures to ensure data security.

The Information Assurance and Security Strategies curriculum is designed to meet this need. Students will be required to complete a core set of classes which prepares them in the following disciplines: networking, operating systems (e.g., Windows, Linux, etc.), security, and penetration testing. Upon completion of the course work students will also be prepared to sit for certifications such as: CCENT, Linux+, Security+, and Network+.

Mastery of skills will prepare the students for employment in positions such as: Network Security Analyst, IT Security Engineer, Senior Network Security Analyst, Information Security Analyst, Computer Security Technical Specialist, or Network and Computer Systems Administrator.
