Homeland security is both a complex and a dynamic field, which involves a wide-variety of professions and information technology skill sets. Information security remains a primary concern for the National Security Agency (NSA) and the Department of Homeland Security. Continued challenges to the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of distributed computing drove the innovation of a new concentration in Homeland Security within the B.S. in Information Technology program at Middle Georgia State College. This paper will present the educational components of the Homeland Security concentration as well as discuss modifications to the Information Security and Assurance program. The programs design takes into account the outcomes from the Center of Excellence in Information Assurance Education (CAE) with the intent of moving the institution into a recognized status.
