About the Information Assurance Program

  • Arch Winter 11409D12The Information Assurance program at Indiana University of Pennsylvania strives to develop students into leaders in the information assurance field.

    The program provides opportunities for students to gain hands-on experience as they work on faculty research projects or community projects. It also provides “training the trainer” sessions through summer faculty workshops in cybersecurity and information assurance.

    IUP is a National Security Agency (NSA) Center of Academic Excellence in information assurance education. Partnerships with companies in Western Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Ohio, and surrounding areas further engage students into security research. The program actively promotes security awareness and arranges numerous continuing education opportunities in information assurance and cybersecurity for local companies.
