Arlington, VA - March 22, 2012

ESI International, the world's leading project management training company, today announced the release of a series of courses focused on information assurance, with emphasis on the needs of an integrated, cross-functional project team. Comprised of two instructor led courses and three online learning modules, the collection is designed to teach the competencies needed to put proper security measures into place.

“Cyber attacks and information breaches are inevitable and will escalate in the coming years,” said ESI Vice President of Government Markets, Bill Damaré. “ESI’s new courses ensure that project team members are trained on information assurance fundamentals, risk management and are able to plan for business continuity.”

With unique focus on meeting the unique needs of project teams, ESI’s content teaches the knowledge and skills required to develop a strategy that can be integrated into project implementation plans.

"Designed specifically for project or acquisition teams, our content ensures that planning a cyber security strategy is no longer an afterthought,” Damaré said.

Courses include Managing Information Technology Projects and Information Assurance Basics, IT and Information Assurance Risk Management, Information Assurance Fundamentals, Information Assurance Risk Management, and Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery Planning.

In tandem with the release of the course series, ESI has also authored a white paper that highlights the importance of putting the right security measures in place. The paper, “Information Assurance is Mission Assurance,” can be found here: esi-intl.com/Cybersecurity
