Information security

Cybersecurity vs. Information Security

Information security includes cybersecurity, and I cover those basics in my article,  Introduction to Cybersecurity and Information Security, which is continually updated.

As I define it in my book on Policies and Procedures:

Information security is pretty much like cybersecurity, but it has been around longer and could include non-cyber information (paper, verbal statements, etc.). But for practical convenience think of it being the same as cybersecurity. The objectives of information security are confidentiality, integrity, and availability (CIA) of information assets.

Learn about cybersecurity to protect yourself and your organization, and to improve your decision making.
