PECB Information Security Officer

What is Information Security? 

Information security refers to the processes and controls intended to protect the information, whether it is electronic or physical. It determines what information needs to be protected, why it should be protected, how to protect it, and what to protect it from. Information security covers many areas, including network, application, physical, incident response, and supply chain security. Organisations establish and implement policies, frameworks, processes, and controls to secure information and support business objectives.

Information security is based on three core principles: confidentiality, integrity, and availability. A comprehensive information security strategy that integrates these three principles enables information security and privacy, access control, risk management, and incident response, among others. It not only mitigates risks but also builds trust among stakeholders, fostering a strong basis for effective management of operations and growth.

Why is Information Security Important for You?

Information can be communicated, stored, refined, and used to control processes. It is one of the most valuable and significant assets in an organisation. The information must be traced throughout its lifecycle to ensure proper management and protection, from creation to disposal. Tracing information can help identify potential security threats, track access and usage, and provide accountability for data breaches or other incidents. Furthermore, information should be updated when necessary, following established procedures and policies. 

Numerous people and organisations are affected by data breaches and exposed to different types of harmful activities. A lack of appropriate security controls can turn a small vulnerability into an enormous data leak, leading to major organisational consequences, such as revenue loss, damaged reputation, or loss of intellectual property. Unintentional information disclosures can cause irreversible damages; therefore, every organisation must have a well-designed information security program developed, controlled, and monitored by an Information Security Officer. 

By obtaining the PECB Information Security Officer training courses, you will develop the professional knowledge to plan and oversee the implementation of an information security program and, in turn, ensure that an organisation’s confidential information is protected from disclosure.
