The need for security professionals is growing along with increasing reliance of businesses and governments on IT. The employer demand for information systems security professionals shows no end in sight. The program maintains a sharp focus on the needs of employers and changes in industry.
The program allows you preparation time for writing the certification exam for Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP). Please note it is a student/graduate responsibility to register and pay for the actual CISSP exam. Some students/graduates also choose to write the certification exam for Certified Information Security Manager (CISM) as well as Certified Information Systems Auditor (CISA).
One half of the courses in the Master of Information Systems Assurance Management (MISAM) program are from the Master of Information Systems Security Management program (7 required courses and one optional course). Assurance program focuses on business aspect of IT and prospective candidates expected to have background in both technology and accounting/finance. You may be required to take additional courses as a probationary student in the program, if you do not have all of the MISAM prerequisite courses (but are otherwise admissible).
Our program follows the Information Systems Audit and Control Association (ISACA) model curriculum. We use and follow ISACA best practices and normally encourage students to pursue a COBIT 5 Foundation certification during the program and some consider other COBIT 5 certifications and other ISACA certifications.
At the end of the program some students also write the Certified Information Systems Auditor (CISA) exam or related certification exams such as the CISM (also offered by ISACA).
