Data protection and data security
Information security is largely about ensuring that the right information is available to the right person at the right time.
It is usually described with the following terms:
- Confidentiality – that information only is available to authorized persons.
- Integrity – that information is reliable, accurate and complete.
- Availability – that the information is available to authorized persons when they need the information
Information related to your research should be adequately protected with regards to the assessed potential risks - neither more nor less. Too high level of protection will cost too much money and inadequate protection will result in the organization having unnecessary high risks.
