This paper extends the current concepts of integrating information security topics within existing academic programs to actually establishing a new academic discipline for Information Assurance (IA). It explores the business drivers for such a program and the core body of knowledge required to establish a viable program of academic study in IA. Students of tomorrow should have the opportunity to pursue an IA degree at both undergraduate and graduate levels.
