The Information Assurance Education Graduate Certificate program is one of three National Security Agency funded projects under the Information Assurance Awareness, Training, and Education Partnership Program (IAATREP). The National Security Agency has funded IAATREP with the long-term goal of improving the health of Information Assurance on a national level. The short-term outcome of the IAATREP program is to increase the quality of education and training in information assurance and in turn increase the number of qualified students entering the field of IA. As we increase the number of qualified students entering the field of IA, we will be better prepared to meet DoD, Federal and national increasing dependence on information technology for defending America's increasingly vulnerable information infrastructure.
