IT Governance—Designed to provide perspective to information systems and technology issues at the strategic level, this stream helps managers make well-informed planning and resource decisions.

Information Security Management—Designed for information security managers, this stream provides a clear description of the key elements of effective security management practices and programs.
IT Business—This stream focuses on IT as a key element of important business processes and helps participants learn how to improve the bottom line, gain competitive advantage and sustain growth through information-related technologies.
