Today, Capella announced the launch of a new online Master of Science in Information Assurance and Security, with specializations in Digital Forensics and Network Defense.
This new program provides numerous advantages for working professionals seeking to advance their career with a master’s that aligns to key industry certifications and standards in the field. They include:
- A curriculum designed around the most recent standards set by the NSA, the International Organization for Standardization ISO 27001, and the domains of knowledge represented in several leading security certifications, including CISSP®.
- A Dual-Credential Pathway, offered in partnership with the InfoSec Institute, which provides students the opportunity to earn their MS in Information Assurance and Security degree and CISSP® certification—in less time and for less money than pursuing each credential separately.
- The opportunity for students to save time and money by earning credit toward this MS for existing IT certifications, such as CISM, CEH, and more.
- A secure, virtual lab environment that allows students to develop and enhance their skills by practicing with tools used in the information security profession, including EnCase® and BackTrack.
- A core curriculum designed to prepare information security professionals to evaluate information security practices, analyze emerging threats and countermeasures, and apply security management principles.
Enrollment is now open

ISACA Webinar – Sponsored by Capella
DATE: March 27th
TIME: 11:00 Central
TITLE: Data-Driven Security – Using “Big Data” to Protect the Enterprise
SPEAKER: Pete Lindstrom, Principal, Spire Security, LLC
ABSTRACT: Data – big, small, or the perfect size for Goldilocks – is revolutionizing the way we think about security. For some, it provides a way to identify risky behavior or activity and react quickly, with an opportunity for fewer false positives. To others, it represents a change in paradigms as they shift from a preventive model to one that strives for resilience. In all cases, the term can be ambiguous or hollow as people miscommunicate with each other about their needs and interests.
This webcast will drill down into all of the different flavors of “big data.” It will identify the sources and types of data that may be brought to bear on problems, the outputs and actions that are possible with a big data program, and the steps needed to get to a robust, data-driven security program.
ISACA members can earn a free Continuing Professional Education (CPE) credit.

Stay competitive and valued in your area of expertise by joining Cisco for a special virtual event called “Take It to the Next Level” on April 17 and 18 from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Pacific Time. Visit one or all of our seven sessions and learn about where you could go with Cisco Professional-level certifications in Data Center, Design, Security, Service Provider, Voice, Wireless, or Routing and Switching.
Each hour-long webinar will provide a 30-minute overview of the specific field and what Cisco can offer you in terms of CCNP (or CCDP®) advancement. The overview will be followed by a full 30 minutes of Q&A, so there will be plenty of time to ask questions about what might be in it for you.
Plus, our experts will be available for a special panel session on April 18 to answer all your professional-level certification questions.
