Security and Risk Analysis (SRA)

You are here

The Security and Risk Analysis (SRA) major helps students protect organizational information, people, and other assets by applying principles of risk management. This includes skill sets in risk analysis, threat identification, risk control strategies, decision making, emergency response, and intelligence analysis.

The SRA major looks at how to design systems that are secure, how to measure risk, and how ensure that proper levels of privacy are maintained for individual technology users, businesses, government, and other organizations. Within the SRA major, there are three options. At the time when a student requests entrance to the SRA major, an option must be chosen. The SRA major is based on an interdisciplinary curriculum that integrates areas of study in information assurance (both digital and physical security), intelligence analysis, and cyber forensics. It also would provide leadership and venue-specific skills needed in this area.
