for Advanced Study and Practice of Information Assurance
The Center for the Advanced Study and Practice
of Information Assurance (CASPIA) at Santa Clara University is an
interdepartmental institute whose purpose is to promote research,
education, and good practice in information security (INFOSEC) and
information assurance (IA).
Assurance Courseware Evaluation
A national level
committee of the
National Security Agency has
determined that our curriculum parallels that required for the CNSS
information assurance professionals.
Formal recognition was announced at the annual conference
of the Committee on National Systems Security (CNSS) in April
In June 2006 CNSS recognized our latest achievement, of meeting the CNSS (NSTISSI) standard 4012 for Senior System Managers.
Next year we will seek recognition as an Academic Center of Excellence
in Information Assurance Education under an outreach program of the
Department of Homeland Security and the National Security Agency.
Students who complete appropriate courses may petition to receive the
4011 and 4012 certificates.
