AUM recently applied to the National Information Assurance Education and Training Program (NIETP) of the National Security Agency for certification that the Cybersystems and Information Security degree meets the organization's stringent standards.
The application was a success. Information Assurance Courseware Evaluation (IACE) Program evaluators certified AUM's course-ware as meeting all of the elements of the Committee on National Security Systems (CNSS) National Training Standard for information systems security professionals.
In June 2013, AUM will receive recognition and an official certificate. The IACE Program provides consistency in training and education for the information assurance skills that are critical to our nation's security.
AUM's CSIS graduate program reached this milestone after only two full academic years. In 2010, the program was first accredited and, in 2011, its first students enrolled.
