Information Security Management

Information Security Management Minor

Information security management ensures the confidentiality, integrity and availability of an organization’s information, data and IT services. Information security refers to the processes and methodologies which are designed and implemented to protect print, electronic or any other form of confidential, private and sensitive information from unauthorized access, use, misuse, disclosure, destruction, modification or disruption.

An Information Security Management (ISM) minor offers students the opportunity to enhance their major with knowledge in risk analysis, security control, mobile security and networks. Depending on the major area of study, a minor in ISM can position graduates for positions in such areas as information security analyst, information security manager, data security manager, cyber security, or IT consultant.

U.S. News and World Report regularly lists information security analyst on its list of 100 best jobs. The U.S. Bureau of Labor and Statistics expects job growth of 37 percent among information security analyst careers by 2022, which should lead to around 27,400 new positions in that period nationwide.
