Building skills for a Smarter Planet

Security and information assurance

Security has ascended in importance across businesses of all sizes, whether it's the CMO evaluating the potential risk to the brand, the CFO understanding the financial implications of adverse events, or the COO assessing the impact of IT systems disruptions on ongoing operations. Developing security intelligence skills — the ability to proactively predict, identify, and react to potential threats — will take on a new priority in the digital age.

We have software, courseware, and other resources for you to use in your classrooms and labs so that your students can get the skills they need to become part of the information security profession.
