Up One Level

Data / Information


In the area of Information Security, data (and the individual elements that comprise the data) is processed, formatted and re-presented, so that it gains meaning and thereby becomes information. Information Security is concerned with the protection and safeguard of that information which, in its various forms can be identified as Business Assets or Information Assets.

The terms data and information can be used somewhat interchangeably; but, as a general rule, information always comprises data, but data is not always information.
