Did you know?

Security deals the Confidentiality, Integrity, and Availability of information.  This is also known as the C-I-A triad, and the field of Information Assurance deals with controlling the triad.

Confidentiality means to protect the secrecy of information

Integrity means that the information has not been modified without proper authorization

Availability means that the information is available when it needs to be accessed

Did you know?

Most threats to an organization come from their employees?  Think about it, they have access to almost everything within the organization including server names, username and password schemes, and the personnel in-charge of different areas of the organization.  Good security training and awareness practices can help mitigate the threats such as strong policies in place, and teaching your workers to look for signs of malicious behavior. Check out this article from ZDNet about insider threats being an issue:
