Five Pillars of Information Assurance Framework

Information Assurance (IA) is the practice of protecting against and managing risks related to the use, processing, storage, and transmission of data and information systems. The U.S. Department of Defense has promulgated the Five Pillars of Information Assurance model that includes the protection of confidentiality, integrity, availability, authenticity, and non-repudiation of user data.

Here are the five pillars of the IA framework that you need to manage in your office cyberspace:

1. Confidentiality

This is the assurance that information is not disclosed to unauthorized individuals, groups, processes, or devices. Highly confidential data must be encrypted so third parties cannot easily decrypt it. Only those who are authorized to view the information are allowed access.

2. Integrity

The accuracy and completeness of vital information must be safeguarded. Data should not be altered or destroyed during transmission and storage. This involves making sure that an information system is not tampered by any unauthorized entities. Policies should be in place so that users know how to properly utilize their system.
