Center for Information Assurance

Every organization, public or private, which collects. processes, and/or stores customer information is subject to a variety of laws and regulations.  Medical facilities must comply with HIPAA, stores that accept credit cards have to conform to the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard, and attorneys must have an understanding of eDiscovery processes. 

The CVCC Center for Information Assurance was established in July, 2009 with a mission to:

1.  Assist public and private sector organizations in the Catawba Valley region to improve their awareness of the need for Information Assurance (IA) programs.

2.  Provide a mechanism to bring the expertise of CVCC faculty to bear on solving IA problems for local organizations and businesses through the provision of training and technical assistance services.

3.  Use the practical experiences gained through the promotion of IA to improve the ability of the workforce in the Catawba Valley to work in information/knowledge intensive jobs -- including problem solving, analysis, and information security.
