abstract

  • The United States Military Academy (USMA), which provide the educational foundation to the army's future leaders, is discussed. With technology taking center stage, USMA recently added a specific goal of ensuring that graduates can understand and apply information technology concepts to acquiring, managing, communicating, and defending information. USMA's information assurance (IA) program incorporates the technical depth expected in a national-level IA undergraduate program and provides various avenues to reach out to nontechnical users. USMA also implements Department of Defense (DoD) policies through the chain-of-command responsible for the information security program.
