Concentration in Information Assurance

Information Assurance is the practice of managing risks related to the use, processing, storage, and transmission of information or data and the systems and processes used for those purposes. More simply, IA is concerned with thoroughly understanding threats to computer systems, such as viruses and computer criminals, and formulating and deploying solutions to protect cyberspace. Information Assurance encompasses work in operating systems internals, cryptography, penetration testing, reverse engineering, digital forensics, and social engineering.
