Information security VS Information Technology

Information security VS Information Technology

Try to emphasize that while the two disciplines are similar sounding, their vision, mission, curricular framework and competency frameworks are different. How a degree in information technology is a generalist degree, providing a student with understanding of broad and fundamental computing subjects such as programming, databases, networking, human-computer interaction and web systems while a degree in information security is a specialist degree focusing on information security. You can also stress how mobile applications, enterprise computing, social platforms, internet of things and cybersecurity have lead to the creation of a separate, specialized curriculum, viz, information security. If there are specific careers that a degree in information security prepares (Cyber Security Architect, Information Security Architect, Good Governance Architect, etc) that a person with a degree in IT would be generally unable to fill, you can specify that as well.
