Reasons to Establish a Robust Information Security Strategy
Information Security Risks
Data SprawlEmployee use of multiple devices, networks, and storage systems can lead to sensitive data being stored in places it shouldn't be. Defining your scope and controlling which devices store data is a critical element to information security.
Incorrect Identity MangementTaking shortcuts when granting access to platforms that store and utilize sensitive data can leave that information vulnerable. Individual user profiles, strong password usage, and multi-factor authentication will help mitigate this risk.
Third-Party ManagementUtilizing third-parties does not absolve an organization from their responsibilities related to information security. Remember to monitor your third parties and regularly ensure they are achieving their compliance requirements.
Shadow ITDevices, software, and applications that haven't been vetted by an organization's IT team create holes in the information security strategy. Clear communication regarding your policy surrounding shadow IT continues to be a priority.
Incomplete TrainingEvery employee at your organization should adopt information security as a priority in their everyday life. Ongoing training will help to promote data security concepts, enabling it to become second nature and part of your company culture.
No Incident Response PlanAn organization can take proactive steps to protect sensitive data and still experience a breach. Establishing and testing your incident response plan is essential in taking steps to contain a breach effectively if one was to occur.

Top InfoSec Frequently Asked Questions
Information security, also commonly called InfoSec, refers to the practice of protecting information and information systems from unauthorized access, use, disclosure, disruption, modification, or destruction. It involves a set of strategies, techniques, and processes that are designed to ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of information.
Information security encompasses a range of different areas, including computer security, network security, physical security, operational security, and personnel security. It involves the implementation of various measures and controls, such as access controls, authentication, encryption, backup and recovery, and risk management.
The goal of information security is to minimize the risk of unauthorized access, use, or disclosure of sensitive or confidential information. This is important because the loss or theft of such information can have serious consequences, including financial loss, damage to reputation, and legal liability. Therefore, information security is essential for protecting the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of information and ensuring the continuity of business operations.
The three fundamental principles of information security are:
- Confidentiality: This principle ensures that sensitive information is protected from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. Confidentiality is achieved through various measures, such as access controls, encryption, and data classification. The goal is to ensure that only authorized individuals or entities have access to the information.
- Integrity: This principle ensures that information is accurate, complete, and trustworthy. Integrity is achieved through measures such as data validation, error checking, and access controls. The goal is to prevent unauthorized modification, deletion, or destruction of information.
- Availability: This principle ensures that information is accessible and usable when needed. Availability is achieved through measures such as backup and recovery, redundancy, and disaster recovery planning. The goal is to ensure that information is always available to authorized individuals or entities when they need it.
Information security is a broader term that refers to the protection of all forms of sensitive and confidential information, regardless of the medium in which it is stored or transmitted. Information security includes physical, administrative, and technical controls to protect against unauthorized access, use, disclosure, alteration, destruction, or disruption of information. It encompasses a range of areas, such as data security, network security, personnel security, and operational security.
Cybersecurity is a more specific term that refers to the protection of information and systems that are connected to the internet or other networks. It focuses on the protection of digital information, such as data, networks, devices, and applications, from cyber threats, such as viruses, malware, hacking, and other attacks. Cybersecurity includes measures such as firewalls, intrusion detection and prevention systems, encryption, and vulnerability scanning.
