The growth and availability of the Internet created serious vulnerabilities in connected systems. In response to this, the Federal Government has created several programs. Significant among those is the National Security Telecommunications and Information Systems Security Policy and the implementing directives that specify training standards for various professional positions related to telecommunications and information systems security. In response to the directives of the National Security Telecommunications and Information Systems Security Committee (NSTISSC) and to the results of independent research, the faculty of the College of Information Science and Technology at the University of Nebraska at Omaha decided to implement a concentration in Information Assurance as an option in the Master of Science in Management Information Systems Program.
