•Confidentiality (protection from unauthorized view or possession)
•Integrity (protection from unauthorized modification or removal)
•Availability (having information and processes available when needed)
Confidentiality, Integrity, Availability is often shortened to “CIA”
Sometimes “Accountability” (knowing what, who, when, and how information is accessed) is added to the list of “CIA”, but accountability is more of a management issue rather than a security property.
Bottom line for you is keeping your
safe, secure, and available.
Information Security is all about maintaining proper control over your information
The objective of information security is "the protection of the interests of those relying on information, and the information systems and communications that deliver the information, from harm resulting from failures of availability, confidentiality, and integrity".
