Information Assurance Model
When I talk about information security, I’m actually talking about a specific model; this security model is widely described as the information security model or the information assurance (IA) model. Some people love to debate whether to treat these two models separately; regardless, as a security professional, you need to have a general idea of what the IA model is, how it works, and why it is important from a modern security perspective. Proponents of the information security model opine that it is the same as the IA model. The information security model is all about three key elements: people, process, and technology.
