Master of Science in Information Security Assurance
Information Security & Assurance

Information drives the bottom line in today’s business environment. However, complex, emerging threats to information quality and security make it difficult to protect a company’s profits, performance and reputation. Add to this a scarcity of high-level leaders who grasp both the technical and business aspects of information assurance, and we face the prospect of a perfect storm of information risks.

Become The Leader That Business Is Looking For

Offered through our College of Business, the new Master of Science in Information Security & Assurance (MSISA) is designed for professionals who aspire to leadership positions in the information security arena. While the majority of information security degrees focus solely on technical aspects, the MSISA balances technical knowledge with business management principles. In addition to understanding the technology behind information security, you will learn how information security drives enterprise-wide strategy and success.

According to the RAND Corporation, the shortage in information security and assurance personnel is primarily at the high end of the capability scale.

A More Convenient and Customized Master’s Degree

To meet the demands of busy professionals, the MSISA is offered in multiple instructional modalities, including entirely online. You will have the flexibility to study from anywhere at any time. You can also customize your career path by choosing from three concentrations that are particularly relevant in today’s business climate:

  • Protecting Business Intelligence
  • Information Systems Security
  • Information Assurance in a Global Context

Prepare For Excellence In Any Industry

Another advantage of the MSISA is an interdisciplinary approach that makes the learning applicable to any industry. In any field in which business success depends on effective information, the MSISA prepares you to excel as a strong decision maker driving enterprise-wide policies.
