Information security refers to the processes and controls intended to protect information, whether it is electronic or physical. It determines what information needs to be protected, why should it be protected, how to protect it, and what to protect it from.
Information security covers many areas, including network security, application security, physical security, incident response, and supply chain security. Organizations establish and implement policies, frameworks, processes, and controls to secure information and support business objectives.
Information security is based on three core principles: confidentiality, integrity, and availability. A comprehensive information security strategy that integrates these three principles enables information security and privacy, access control, risk management, and incident response, among others. It does not only mitigate risks but also builds trust among stakeholders, fostering a strong basis for effective management of operations and growth.
