"There has been a shift in the culture of believing that only security professionals
have responsibility for an organization's information security. In my role as Associate
Director of the University IT Customer Experience Team at Augusta University, I feel
that it is my responsibility to help educate our customers on this topic. By completing
the MS-ISM program, I was able to gain a better understanding of the in-depth concepts
required to manage in an information security environment."
