Information Security & Risk

Information security and risk refers to the protecting of data and information important to the organization, its people, customers or partners. This includes securing of networks and devices, monitoring of information flows, handling of data and educating employees and consumers. Ubiquitous online access and massive growth of electronic data collection and storage have fueled increases in the number and complexity of security challenges. At CDS, we focus on understand how organizations can minimize risks in this increasingly complex information security environment.
