CS/CIS Degree Programs Receive National Security Agency Certification
The National Information Assurance Education and Training Program (NIETP), which is administered by the National Security Agency (NSA), has certified JSU's CS and CIS courseware to meet all of the elements of the Committee on National Security Systems (CNSS) National Training Standards for:
- Information Systems Security (INFOSEC) Professionals, NSTISSI No. 4011
- System Administrators (SA), CNSSI No. 4013 Entry Level
This certification adds a tremendous value to JSU's CS and CIS degrees in that an NSA certificate can now be given to each graduate who completes the set of courseware. In addition, it brings JSU one step closer to being designated as a national Center of Excellence in Information Assurance Education.
The course mapping work was performed during the summer months by Drs. Guillermo Francia, III, Monica Trifas, and Aaron Garrett of the MCIS department.
