What is Information Assurance?
Information assurance means safeguarding information security and managing risk factors related to the processing, storage, and transmission of data and information. Information assurance also addresses the protection of the integrity and authenticity of user data, in digital, analog and physical forms. As an information assurance professional, you can work with organizations to increase the security of their client and customer information as well as analyze risk management. Information assurance is similar to the field of Information Security, but information assurance relates more to the business level and management of information, rather than the creation of security controls and measures.
