The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga has designated an Information Security and Assurance (InfoSec) Center to serve as a regional model for promoting excellence in information security education, assist businesses, government agencies, educational institutions and industry in their information security needs, and serve as the first point of call for any information security emergency. The Center is housed in the department of Computer Science and Engineering in the College of Engineering and Computer Science.

The documentation from the Provost of the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, and from the UT President Peterson in 2007 demonstrates the official approval for the establishment of the UTC InfoSec Center.
