The importance of protecting the sensitive information your business holds

Information security (InfoSec) is a widely used term to describe the practice of preventing unauthorised access, modification or destruction of digital or non-digital information and the strategies that seek to achieve this.

Information security programs are often built around the CIA triad. At all times, organisations must seek to prevent information being attained by unauthorised parties (Confidentiality), thwart unauthorised modification of information (Integrity) and facilitate easy access to authorised users (Accessibility).

In an era where attacks are increasing in frequency and sophistication, InfoSec has become a boardroom concern. Organisations of all sizes must ensure they implement a robust information security strategy encompassing dedicated security experts, risk management processes and the latest prevention and detection technology.
