ISO/IEC Info Security: Ensuring Data Protection

ISO/IEC Information Security is a set of international standards designed to protect information from unauthorized access, disclosure, modification, or destruction. It is implemented through a combination of physical, organizational, and technical measures, such as access control systems, encryption, authentication, and data integrity. The standards are intended to ensure that information is kept secure and confidential, and that it is accurate and available when needed. ISO/IEC Information Security is applicable to all organizations, regardless of size or sector, and is used to protect a wide range of information, including financial, health, and personal data. The standards are regularly updated to reflect the latest technological developments and best practices in the industry.
