Pursue a Career in Information Assurance and Become a Valuable Business Asset!

Do you have an interest in data systems, information technology, cybersecurity, and business? A career in Information Assurance (IA) might be the perfect fit for you! Information Assurance encompasses the practices of assuring information security and managing risk factors related to the processing, storage, and transmission of data and information. IA also addresses the protection of the integrity and authenticity of user data, in digital, analog and physical forms. As an IA professional, you can work with organizations to increase the security of their client and customer information as well as analyze risk management. IA is similar to the field of Information Security, but IA relates more to the business level and management of information, rather than the creation of security controls and measures.
