The objective of our MIS 416 course is to provide our University of Arizona students with a thorough and operational knowledge of information security so that this critical area is recognized as a management issue and not an I.T. issue. As the course topics within our MIS 416 syllabus have been directly "mapped" against the U.S. National Security Agency (NSA) certification requirements for National Training Standard for Information System Security for professionals, students completing the current MIS 416 course are awarded the NSA-CNSS certificate No. 4016. (NTSISS 4016; Risk Analyst).
