The Information Assurance Student Group is an Iowa State University Student Organization for students interested in becoming professionals in Information Assurance or who just wish to learn more about how to make their networks, computers, and applications more secure. Information Assurance is the practice of assuring the integrity, availability, confidentiality, and overall security of information and thus comprises a wide range of disciplines. The Information Assurance Center at Iowa State is composed of Mathematicians, Electrical Engineers, Computer Engineers, Computer Scientists, Managers of Information Systems, and Political Scientists. IASG is open to anyone! We have weekly meetings about topics such as computer viruses, firewalls, database security, physical security, wireless jamming, or many others (check out the library page for more examples); and offer hands-on labs in things such as vulnerability scanning, wireless network cracking, and more!
If you've always wanted to learn about how to make your computer secure, and check that it actually is, come to one of our meetings! If you have a particular request for a meeting topic, please let us know here or via email and we'll see what we can do. If you'd like to present at a meeting, please email us your name and desired topic.
