Welcome to Unit 3: Data Protection. This unit will provide you with the necessary knowledge and skills on data protection measures.
Because information and information technology are fundamental to just about all aspects of modern life, the modern era is often referred to as the Information age. By its very nature, much information is private and confidential. Information security refers to all the procedures which are used to protect information for deliberate or accidental misuse or dissemination. Technically, it refers to the maintenance of the integrity of information. Integrity means that the information remains correct at all times and cannot be accessed by unauthorised agents.
