The most important aspect of cybersecurity is information. The three characteristics of information are confidentiality, integrity, availability. The three states information are storage, transmission and processing. The ways to safeguard information is with technology, education, and policy.
Information is everything in the world of cybersecurity. To secure this information, we implement the Security Triad: confidentiality, integrity, and availability (also known as the CIA Triad). We must also understand the states of information in order to build security structures for our data at each state layer. Implementing one security structure is not enough: we need defense in depth. To fully a secure an organization, it must utilize technology, provide education, and create intelligent policies.
