Building Information Assurance Educational Capacity: Pilot Efforts to Date

  • Abstract

    This report describes efforts by the Software Engineering Institute (SEI) to increase the capacity of institutions of higher education to offer information assurance (IA) and information security (IS) courses, to expand existing IA and IS offerings, and to include IA and IS topics and perspectives, as appropriate, in other courses. 

    To accomplish these goals, the SEI transitions courseware, materials, and a survivability and information assurance curriculum to various departments at institutions of higher education, participates in NSF-funded faculty capacity-building programs, creates partnerships with key regional educational institutions, and offers IA symposia, among other efforts. While the SEI works with all institutions of higher education, there is a particular focus on minority-serving institutions. 

    Rather than build a new infrastructure to accomplish this, the SEI utilizes partnerships that leverage the strengths of the SEI and the strengths of the partner educational institutions and builds upon existing trusted relationships and infrastructure, and sustains the incorporation of new and evolving materials. Leveraging other complementary programs, events, and organizations broadens the offering and makes it more cost effective to all parties concerned.
