This paper responds to issues raised by Information Assurance (IA) researchers and teachers, ([1], [2], [3]) on the cross-disciplinary nature of the field. It seeks to expand the debate on the content of forensic computing, information security and information warfare curriculum by proposing a minor stream (or track) in Information Assurance which could serve as part of a broad range of undergraduate programs. These include degrees in science, social science or business rather than the technical ones, such as computer science and IT, where the IA minor stream is currently located.
