"Information security is considered by many to be one of the main challenges of our generation," IS&T Dean Hesham Ali said, "Properly addressing Information security concerns is critical not only to economic prosperity but also to national security, and UNO's information assurance program is regarded as one of the best in the country."
This exciting opportunity provides Master's-level education in the management and rigorous technical assessment of information-related risks by ensuring confidentiality, integrity, and availability of data. Potential job prospects for graduates with this degree range from federal government departments to healthcare providers.
