Information Assurance and Security Education Center
Led by the director of the Center for the Management of Information, Jay Nunamaker, the Information Assurance & Security Education Center was established to address the growing need for Information Security professionals trained with a focus in Information Assurance. The center’s primary focuses are to foster curriculum development, conduct research, form professional alliances, and provide educational outreach as it applies to areas of information security and Information Assurance (IA), training, and awareness.
Recently, the Eller College of Management was designated as a National Center of Academic Excellence in Information Assurance Education by the National Information Assurance Education and Training Program. This designation will be in effect for the academic years 2009-2014, and is governed by a set of nine criteria, including outreach, university-level support, and multi-disciplinary collaboration.
