Leading in a Global Market : MIS Department Answers Demand for Professionals with Information Security Expertise
By Liz Warren-Pederson
New online Enterprise Security Certification program for working professionals begins May 17.
Nearly three-quarters of organizations believe they have adequate policies in place to protect personal information, yet more than half have lost sensitive data within the past two years — and nearly 60 percent of those organizations acknowledge data loss as a recurring problem, according to a global study released by Accenture.
There is growing demand for IT professionals with expertise in information systems security, and in response to that demand, the top-ranked Department of Management Information Systems (MIS) at the University of Arizona’s Eller College of Management has launched a new online certification program aimed at working professionals who want to stay at the top of the IT security game.
In less than a year, professionals can earn an Enterprise Security Certificate from the Department of MIS, which holds a designation as a Center of Academic Excellence in Information Assurance Education by the National Security Agency and the Department of Homeland Security.
