Norwich Universitys Master of Science in Information Security & Assurance program helps working adults interested in the many aspects of information security to develop the business acumen and management skills needed to pursue leadership positions in information security and assurance. While industry certifications like CISSP and CISM are critical in the field of information security, graduates of the program who hold a technical certification in addition to our degree are armed with the skills they need to help ensure that information assets are understood, valued and protected within the complex business enterprise.
Our rigorous curriculum explores the technical theories and methods behind information assurance, best practices in information security technology, organizational structure and policy development, the regulatory environment and compliance, and management strategies. Key skills fostered throughout the program include written communications, critical analysis, problem solving, project management, and leadership.
