Information Security Defined

A general, non-technical description of this term is that it provides the ability to get the proper information to properly authorized people at the appropriate time, while preventing access to it by unauthorized people. Information security services and information security systems should follow the “CIA triad,” in that all information should be maintained with a high degree of confidentiality, integrity and availability.

Information Security Prevalence

All information stored on a network should be protected by information security systems and information security services in order to prevent improper access or dissemination of the information.
