Title:Information Assurance, Intelligence and Security: Opportunities and Directions for Future Research
Author(s):Paquette, Scott; Fagnot, Isabelle; Desouza, Kevin C.; Yates, Dave; Ho, Shuyuan Mary
Subject(s):Information Security
Abstract:A growing number of the iSchools have recently begun to emphasize programs of research directed towards the topic of information assurance, intelligence and security. Covering such areas as network and infrastructure security, information systems auditing and security practices and standards, behavioral security studies, information and technology risk management, and business continuity planning, the idea of information security has become a focus of not only iSchools but major corporations and intelligence agencies. This field is also receiving much attention in practitioner and academic institutions, and increasingly universities are developing new courses, minors, programs, and research centers in an attempt to expand the field. This roundtable would present a picture of the current state of research in the information assurance and security field including current trends, directions and new areas of emphasis for future research, how the iSchools have the potential to develop unique contributions to the field, and possible collaborations between iSchool researchers and other departments. Hosted by a combination of tenure-track professors and PhD candidates with research and/or professional experience in the information assurance, intelligence and security field, this roundtable would introduce attendees to significant research opportunities and the role of iSchools in this growing field.
