The Institute for Information Assurance (IIA) is an interdisciplinary effort between the College of Computer and Information Science and the College of Engineering. The major goal of the Institute is to develop new cross-disciplinary methodologies to provide robust and reliable transmission of physically distributed information. We are working to provide information security within organizations and advisory services to maintain data integrity and infrastructure security. We also aim to produce professionals that are appropriately trained in current technologies to guard organizations against malicious attacks. The Institute invites participation from undergraduates, graduates, post-graduates and industry.
