Confidentiality and data security are closely related concepts within the broader field of information security. They are two essential components that help protect sensitive and valuable data from unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. This important topic came to us from Fortune India in their article, “The relationship between confidentiality and data security in informatics.”
Data security encompasses a broader set of measures, practices, and technologies designed to protect data from various threats, including unauthorized access, data breaches, data loss, and data corruption.
Confidentiality is a key aspect of data security. Data security measures are implemented to ensure the confidentiality of sensitive information. When data is secure, it means that unauthorized individuals or systems cannot access or view the data, maintaining its confidentiality.
To leverage the power of the data, it has to be made available to lines of business, and the security posture needs to be robust enough to ensure there is no security breach impacting finances or reputation. By keeping those priorities foremost, the organization is able to affect both its security and public-facing integrity for the better.
Making data accessible is something we know. No matter the search, it is vital to have a comprehensive search feature and quality indexing against a standards-based taxonomy. Choose the right partner in technology, especially when your content is in their hands. Access Innovations is known as a leader in database production, standards development, and creating and applying taxonomies.
