Information Security training

IntroductionInformation Security

‌Information is data that has meaning. Information has a value, not necessarily monetary, but the ability to help us make sound decisions.

‌Information can come in many forms - such as verbal, electronic or paper based and it is important to realise that information must be appropriately protected when it is:‌

  • being transferred
