Colorado Technical University Information Systems Security Courseware Meets Requirements of the Committee on National Security Systems (CNSS).

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. -- CTU Colorado Springs' ISS Programs Receive Certification from the Information Assurance Courseware Evaluation Review Committee

Colorado Technical University (CTU) today announced that the Information Assurance Courseware Evaluation (IACE) Review Committee has validated that CTU's courseware meets all of the elements of the Committee on National Security Systems (CNSS) National Training Standards for Information Systems Security (INFOSEC) Professionals and Information Systems Security Officers (Entry Level).

The goal of the Information Assurance Courseware Evaluation (IACE) Program is to ensure compliance with national standards for information assurance education and training throughout the nation. IACE is a systematic assessment of the degree to which the courseware from commercial, government, and academic sources maps to the national standards. The certification ensures that all of the elements of a specific standard are covered in an institution's courseware. As a certified institution, CTU Colorado Springs meets the national training and education standards for properly executing the duties and responsibilities of both Information Systems Security Professionals and Information Systems Security Officers (Entry Level).

"CTU Colorado Springs is pleased that the IACE has evaluated our certification application and validated that our ISS courseware meets all of the elements as prescribed by the Committee on National Security Systems National Training Standards," said Greg Mitchell, President of CTU Colorado Springs. "We are honored to be offering education programs that are so critical to our nation."

ABOUT THE INFORMATION ASSURANCE COURSEWARE EVALUATION PROGRAM:

The IACE Program was established under the authority of the National Security Telecommunications and Information Systems Security Committee (NSTISSC), the predecessor to today's Committee on National Security Systems (CNSS). This inter-governmental organization sets policy for the security of national security systems for the Federal Government.

Presidential Decision Directive 63 (PDD 63) on Critical Infrastructure Protection, issued in May 1998, highlighted the critical shortage of well-trained information assurance professionals and the need for national standards. In January 2000, the NSTISSC initiated the IACE Program to establish those standards, recognizing that the body of knowledge required by the standards was available from a variety of sources: government, commercial industry, and colleges and universities.
