The Georgetown Institute for Information Assurance (GIIA) is an interdisciplinary institute that aims to provide leading edge research and education in information assurance and related disciplines, including information security, privacy, intellectual property protection, information warfare, computer crime and forensics, fraud prevention and detection, and perception management. It seeks to advance the practice of information assurance and to offer beneficial approaches to the policy, social, ethical, legal, and technology issues.

The GIIA is a collaborative effort across Georgetown University's Main Campus, Law Center, and Medical Center. It brings together academic departments and University Information Services (UIS) in order to address pressing real-world problems and challenges, particularly as they relate to computer networks. Equally important, it serves to identify and promote all research and education in information assurance at Georgetown University regardless of its particular home.
