Information security, network security and cloud computing
According to ISO 27000 and Information Security: A Combined Glossary, information security denotes the preservation of the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of information (CIA). Additionally, other properties, such as authenticity, accountability, non-repudiation and reliability can also be involved.
Information security, often called data security, is a governance issue, not an IT department functional responsibility. It involves the understanding and compliance with corporate IT policies which are not only aimed at directors, but also employees who have access to the same computer network within an organisation.
Anyone in a company who has access to corporate data automatically exposes their organisation to some risks. Therefore, corporate network security is of paramount importance and is something every organisation should take very seriously. In Cloud Computing, data is no longer stored in house and software applications are no longer owned by the company. Therefore, directors need to ensure that the business information is secure and the service offered is still reliable.
