This class explores the overarching security architectures and vectors of information assurance from a management perspective to allow the learner to formulate the basis for sound business decisions. Students gain an appreciation for systems, networks, processes, methodologies, documentation requirements, recovery processes, certification and accreditation processes as well as “best practice” implementation, training and continuous improvement. Discussions in this course give the correct acumen of personnel security, physical security, and technical operational security as these principles relate and interface with information security principles. Defense-in-depth principles also are covered for designing proper physical security programs. At the completion of the course students should be able to manage an IA function and evaluate an organization’s Contingency Planning process for adequacy. (3).
