Strictly guessing,

by CharlieSpencer In reply to Interchangeable Professio ...

I'd guess that Information Assurance is similar to Quality Assurance, and involves verifying the accuracy of data.

I'm guessing you're using IT Security to describe protecting a system from attack, and Information Security from the undesired disclosure of data; although a case could be made that the terms are the same thing. This probably depends more on how the company using the terms defines them.
