Information assurance (IA) is an interdisciplinary concentration combining specialized aspects of information systems and accounting. Information Assurance includes many areas of management beyond computer security including auditing, forensic accounting, organizational design, and policy and planning. As such, an MBA program is a natural "home" for an IA concentration. For more information about the IA concentration, visit http://www.mgt.unm.edu/ia/.
