Privacy in Information Security Controls

privacy in information security controls

Selecting and implementing appropriate information security controls will help an organization reduce data security risk to acceptable levels.

There are generally three types of information security controls: administrative, technical, and physical. The administrative controls consist of approved policies, procedures, standards and principles. Technical controls are based on protecting access to the information system, and include user passwords, antivirus software, firewalls, and encryption.  Physical controls control the workplace facilities and environment, and include heating and air conditioning, smoke and fire alarms, fire suppression systems, CCTV cameras, fences, doors, locks, and visitor logs.

The information security controls should be incorporated into the organization’s privacy and data protection program and cover the entire life cycle of information – from the moment it enters the organization to its destruction or loss of relevance.
