Information Confidentiality

Wednesday, March 11, 2009

Abstract

Protecting information confidentiality is a critical security objective for all colleges and universities. Institutions must deploy confidentiality controls in addition to security controls, and they must choose a protection portfolio that might include preventative, detective, and responsive technologies. This study from the Burton Group provides insights for creating a broad set of architecture policies for confidentiality. In addition, it provides information confidentiality requirements specific to that layer for projects that are focused on a particular layer of architecture (such as a perimeter firewall).
