What is Information Assurance?

IA functions focus on the development, operation, management, and enforcement of security capabilities for systems and networks.
Personnel performing IA functions establish IA policies and implement security measures and procedures for the Department of Defense and affiliated information systems and networks.

IA Measurements

IA measures protect and defend information and information systems by ensuring their availability, integrity, authentication, confidentiality, and non-repudiation. This includes providing for their restoration by incorporating protection, detection, and reaction capabilities.
