Description The need for information systems and security professionals is growing along with increasing reliance of businesses and governments on the technology. The demand for information systems security and assurance professionals shows no end in sight. Our programs maintain a sharp focus on the needs of employers and changes in industry. Make information security and assurance your choice and join a growing field. 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). The Assurance program focuses on the business aspect of IT and prospective candidates are expected to have a 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.
