Information Security

Information security refers to the protection of information in terms of availability, integrity, and confidentiality and is not limited to information stored in the IT systems. All valuable information, regardless of how it is available or stored, should be protected. This not only includes privacy-sensitive information, but also research data and copyrighted material.
