10 Technology Trend Introduction - Information Security StoneIron IndustryInformation Age! The world has now moved from NATURAL RESOURCES to INFORMATION ECONOMY Today, information is a key asset of almost every organization and individual!
11 Information Security Space Intro. - Information Security Basic IdeaCIA
12 Security Scenarios (Confidentiality) Information Security – Key Areas Once spying was person against person, country against country. Today, cyber criminals sit on fiber-optic cables and our Wi-Fi networks. They steal data and information without breaking any glass. Keeping data confidential is one core mission of information security
13 Incorrect Information (Integrity) Information Security – Key Areas Wrong information is worse than no information. When users of information lose confidence that the information is accurate, theyll never rely on it. Maintaining data integrity is also a core mission of information security.
14 Inaccessible Information (Availability) Information Security – Key Areas Information security doesnt mean locking everything down. If people dont have the information they need, they cant do their jobs. Information security professionals must be able to balance access to information and the risk of damage. A third core mission of Information Security is making information available when needed.
