IT induction refers to an educational programme or activity that informs staff within an organisation about the IT facilities and services available to them, bringing their attention to current IT policies and guidelines, whilst emphasising individual responsibilities through good working practices.
Information Security & Safeguarding Information
Information security is fundamentally about safeguarding information and information systems from unauthorised access, use and disclosure, and is based on three principles:
- Confidentiality: only those authorised to do so can access the information
- Integrity: information must be accurate, up-to-date and trusted
- Availability: information must be available to those who need it, when they need it.
