The purpose of information security is to protect data by mitigating the risks associated with it. It refers to preventing unauthorized access to disclosure, destruction, disruption, modification of information and the information that they process, store, and transmit. Every information, especially sensitive or confidential, must be protected. It is essential to consider technology, policies, procedures, and people when implementing an effective information security system. In addition, emerging threats and vulnerabilities need to be monitored, assessed, and adapted continuously. Cybercrime, theft, and espionage are some of the threats we face trying to protect our valuable information assets. The goal of information security is to safeguard valuable information assets against a variety of threats. No matter how information is stored, whether electronically or on paper, it must be protected to ensure privacy, integrity, and availability. This chapter talks about the role of information security in modern days.
