In order to effectively perform in today’s fast paced environment, the Information Systems Security Officer (ISSO) must be well prepared to deal with technical, regulatory and legal issues as well as policy oriented concerns. A multidisciplinary curriculum is therefore required to properly prepare the Information Assurance (IA) degree seeking student for the many challenges the future ISSO will face. To address this issue, Fountainhead College of Technology has implemented a bachelor degree program that attempts to simulate the “real-world” corporate or government agency environment. This paper provides an overview of the program methodology, coursework and labs required for the Bachelor of Applied Science in Network Security & Forensics (BASNSF) program.
