In today's increasingly dependent and interdependent global information society, information assurance for systems is gaining tremendous importance. Individuals, governments, and societies are insisting on secure and safe communications environments. The solution to providing those assurances lies in the formation of partnerships between and among business, academia and government. Mr. Fleming will present an overview of a model for such partnerships, to include critical elements for the success of those joint ventures. Dr. Maconachy will briefly discuss the cognitive and social implications related to moving towards a global security-based enteprise.
