Syracuse University is one of thirty-six National Security Agency designated Centers of Academic Excellence in Information Assurance Education. Our IA program was developed within the Center for Systems Assurance (CSA), whose mission is to promote improvement in systems and information assurance through research, education, and technology transfer. The goal of the CSA educational program is to develop students with a broad background in security and information assurance who distinguish themselves by their ability to (1) analyze, synthesize, and make judgments based on engineering and computer-science principles, and (2) use analytical techniques to evaluate the implications of policies, standards, and procedures; the ramifications of changes; and the potential dangers of refinements.
