CNSS Instruction 4013 March 2004 NATIONAL INFORMATION ASSURANCE TRAINING STANDARD FOR SYSTEM ADMINISTRATORS (SA) Awareness, Training and Education (AT&E) are cost-effective methods of improving organizational Information Assurance (IA). In times of ever-contracting budgets, it is difficult to persuade management to spend money on security and training activities that have no direct impact on the organizational bottom line. This paper describes the process used to aid in the systematic development of training to serve as the first line of defense in Information Assurance (IA). In addition, it describes how these materials are applicable to your organizational long-range plans. This document provides minimum standards for administrators of national security systems. It also may offer guidelines for administrators of unclassified systems. Your department or agency may require a more stringent implementation.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
