National Center of Academic Excellence in Information Assurance

CAE-webpageFountainhead College of Technology is proud of our designation as a National Center of Academic Excellence in Information Assurance Education (CAEIAE) by the National Security Agency and the Department of Homeland Security.

Why is this important? This prestigious designation recognizes Fountainhead’s Network Security & Forensics bachelor’s degree program as one of the best in the nation.

Fountainhead College is the only Tennessee college that awards all six certifications available from the National Security Agency Committee on National Security Systems, and we are the only Tennessee college to offer a cybersecurity bachelor’s degree from a Center of Academic Excellence.

  1. NSTISSI-4011 - National Training Standard for Information Systems Security (INFOSEC) Professionals
  2. CNSSI-4012 - National Information Assurance Training Standard for Senior Systems Managers
  3. CNSSI-4013-E - National Information Assurance Training Standard for System Administrators
  4. CNSSI-4014-E - Information Assurance Training Standard for Information Systems Security Officers (ISSO)
  5. NSTISSI -4015 – National Training Standard for System Certifiers
  6. CNSSI-4016-E – National Information Assurance Training Standard for Risk Analysts

Center for Information Assurance

By matching Fountainhead's curriculum to standards created by the National Security Agency’s (NSA) Committee on National Security Systems (CNSS), the NSA authorizes Fountainhead College of Technology to grant six CNSS certificates upon program completion. We are always looking for ways to improve our offerings. As part of our outreach program, we welcome inquiries from potential partnerships, guest speakers, and those with innovative ideas.

This partnership was formed in April 2004 and responds to Priority III of the President's National Strategy to Secure Cyberspace that directs the Federal Government to foster training and education programs to support the Nation's cybersecurity needs, and to increase the efficiency of existing Federal cybersecurity programs. The President's National Strategy to Secure Cyberspace refers to cyberspace as the nervous system of our Nation's critical infrastructures, and indicates that the healthy functioning of cyberspace is essential to our economy and our national security. Securing cyberspace presents a difficult strategic challenge, and information assurance education is a critical component in successfully meeting that challenge.

The National Security Agency and the Department of Homeland Security jointly sponsor the National Centers of Academic Excellence in Information Assurance Education program.
