ALBUQUERQUE, NM - Advanced Optical Technologies, Inc. (AOT) has released its Information Assurance Policy 2.0, covering computer and network hardware, portable and removable media, software development and use, data organization, archiving, and access, personnel security and coordination, facility security and administration, and property acquisition and tracking. The Information Assurance Policy (IAP) 2.0 ToC is available online, while the full IAP is available to customers and collaborators upon request. As AOT CEO Dr. Brian G.
