4 4 PROGRAM DEGREE-LEVEL STANDARD Degree-Level Summary UOIT is committed to providing high quality, challenging, research-oriented graduate programs of study which clearly meet and/or exceed the standards required of masters degrees. The MITS program is a graduate professional program as defined in the Handbook for Public Organizations, and its design is guided by benchmarks described in the Postsecondary Education Quality Assessment Board Handbook for Applicants. This unique MITS program is the first of its kind in Canada and one of a handful of such specialized IT Security graduate degree programs in North America and globally. (These include James Madison University, Mary Washington College, and Idaho State University in the United States and the University of The Hague in the Netherlands), Eminently qualified faculty and well-respected educators have reviewed the draft of the MITS program. UOIT's School of Business and Information Technology currently has at least five highly qualified faculty who will deliver the curriculum in interesting and challenging ways and ensure that students are exposed to knowledge at the forefront of the discipline. The MITS program expects students to advance their knowledge and understanding of complex issues in the field of information technology security and to approach problems in systematic and innovative ways. Relevant Knowledge and Understanding The MITS program is designed to enable students to acquire a high level of knowledge and to develop skills to tackle problems in the rapidly evolving information technology security field. The program draft has been reviewed by academics and Master of Information Technology Security 4

5 industry professionals. Each course has been designed to help students develop an understanding of current theory, research, and practice in information technology security. The proposed MITS program not only emphasizes excellence in graduate level business and information technology security knowledge but soundness in transferable skills (i.e., interpersonal relations, leadership and team building, communication, critical analysis and decision making) and in business and IT ethics. Graduates of the MITS program will engage in a general research-based curriculum and gain a solid foundation of technical knowledge related to the key areas of information technology security. They will have an in-depth understanding of the technological, managerial, social, political, economic, and global issues that affect computer security technology and management. Skill Development The MITS program prepares graduates to take the CISSP exam offered by the International Information Systems Security Certification Consortium, Inc. (ISC) 2 is a notfor-profit consortium and certification organization. It is charged with the responsibility for maintaining various Common Bodies of Knowledge (CBK) for Information Security Professionals, including those for CISSPs (Certificate of Information Systems Security Professionals), certifying the minimum acceptable competence for professionals seeking to hold various credentials (also including CISSP and SSCP). The CISSP Certification designations are recognized and honored by the technology industry worldwide. They continue to grow in recognition and stature as a mark of excellence in the industry. Moreover, (ISC) 2 certifications are required for employment in an ever-increasing number of private and public sector organizations. CISSP and other (ISC) 2 certifications identify individuals as having demonstrated competence and industry knowledge directly related to job performance by virtue of meeting the examination prerequisites and Master of Information Technology Security 5

6 passing the required examination(s). Clearly, as more and more employers seek and even require one or more of the (ISC) 2 certifications, these certifications significantly benefit individuals seeking advancement, improved marketability or access to peer networking. Therefore, the MITS curriculum consists of learning outcomes based on the identified (ISC) 2 common bodies of knowledge. These outcomes include: a. To understand the research process in the discipline of information technology security. b. Demonstrates mastery of the basics of information security by producing a practical, original research paper or case study. c. Demonstrates mastery of risk assessment, IT infrastructure, and related security policies. d.

7 To achieve the objectives of the program and to enhance students learning experiences, it is important for the program to provide students with the necessary hands-on skills and knowledge and opportunities to apply these in original ways. The School of Business and Information Technology will have a Hacker Research Lab, a dedicated space which literally mimics a network setting. Faculty members will incorporate various IT security lab assignments into the MITS courses. For example, groups of students will be assigned to work as either defense or attack teams. The defense team s role will be to secure its system with available hardware and software tools, while the attack team s role will be to attempt to breach the security system as designed by the defense team. This simulated network environment will train our graduate students to better understand IT security from two different perspectives; namely, from that of a technology security officer and from that of a criminally-motivated hacker. Application Students will acquire a systematic knowledge of inquiry and research methods, including qualitative and quantitative approaches. They will use technology models and infrastructure to examine and evaluate risks involved in technological applications, and they will be expected to use sound decision-making strategies to solve problems. Students will be called upon to use IT tools and techniques with greater frequency and efficiency as they complete multifaceted assignments and group projects, analyze progressively complex cases and problems and participate in field-based projects. The IT Security Capstone Research Projects I & II offer students the opportunity to apply core course concepts and techniques to a substantial project in the workplace. The MITS students will understand and be able to apply the best of current practice, but they will also be able to act as managers of transformation to improve that practice as Master of Information Technology Security 7

8 the field evolves. They will be required to work with a faculty member in conducting a research project in areas of IT security. They will be expected to identify a realistic problem or set of problems, and, over two semesters (approximately 7-8 months), to engage in a comprehensive analysis of the problem area(s) to arrive at appropriate solution(s) based on empirical research processes. They will be required to present their findings to a panel of faculty assessors. Their understanding of relevant theory related to IT security technology, their ability to use appropriate qualitative and quantitative methods of analysis and to create and evaluate a range of options, and their research and project management skills will all be challenged during the design and implementation of the project and at the final presentation. Cognitive Skills Problem solving, critical analysis, and synthesis are cognitive skills essential to success in any discipline. MITS students are expected to utilize these skills throughout the program and they will be provided with ample opportunities to refine these skills through such delivery models as problem based learning activities, collaborative and independent work, simulation lab exercises, attack and defense role play in the Hacker Research Lab, written critiques of theory and research, structured debates and discussions in classes, and oral presentations that require justification of decisions. Students will be actively engaged in these intellectual processes as they work with IT security challenges encountered by individuals in the profession. Such realistic and practical assignments will develop and strengthen students abilities to critically analyze the information they see, hear and read, to identify assumptions and implicit values, to gather appropriate data to inform and guide decision-making, to propose new hypotheses, to create and assess a range of solutions, to predict risks and to evaluate outcomes. Students will be required to work in teams in appropriate courses; they will Master of Information Technology Security 8

9 be exposed to a variety of perspectives and called upon to listen, assess and incorporate the ideas of others into the problem solving process. Collaborative activities will enable them to pose questions, devise and sustain arguments, and, most importantly, to be active participants in the learning process. While engaged in such interactive processes, they will learn from and contribute to the learning of others. Lifelong Learning Realistic case studies and lab exercises, presentations by representatives from the IT industry, and the capstone research projects will expose MITS students to the complexities and challenges of a dynamic and ever-changing IT security field. MITS graduates will work in highly complex and unpredictable environments, across different types of corporations and institutions, with a wide variety of colleagues and clients. Change and ambiguity are normal features of a technological environment and students will develop positive attitudes and pro-active strategies to manage them. Students will come to recognize that a strong base of technology knowledge and management skills, an ability to locate and utilize resources effectively, and a willingness to take informed risks will serve them well in demanding situations and changing environments. Students will learn how to engage in advanced research by using print and electronic publications, including scholarly journals, books, and prominent security research websites for the most up-to-date information on IT security. They will recognize the need for independent and ongoing learning to maintain currency in a rapidly changing field and to further develop their professional skills. MITS graduates will have the advanced knowledge base and skill set to undertake further education to support and advance their careers. Master of Information Technology Security 9

10 Transferable Skills All courses in the MITS curriculum have been designed to emphasize the development of qualities and transferable skills which contribute to the students' success as independent learners and as team players. Throughout the entire program, MITS students will be involved in a variety of tasks that involve the demonstration of effective communication skills using oral, written, graphic and electronic formats. They will be expected to share information in ways which are suitable for both lay and specialist audiences. Students will participate in small and large group activities and hone their skills as both team members and leaders. The coursework in the program will require hours of research along with activities involving practical applications. The demanding workload will require students to organize their time and manage their projects efficiently in order to meet clearly defined standards of performance and expected deadlines. UOIT is confident that the proposed MITS program is sufficiently comprehensive and rigorous to meet the standards of a graduate degree program and to provide students with the necessary knowledge base, technical, cognitive, and interpersonal skills and positive attitudes that will enable them to experience personal, academic, and professional success during their graduate studies at UOIT and beyond Samples of Student Work Since this program is not yet offered by the University, this section is not applicable to this submission.
