"On the one hand, information wants to be expensive, because it's so valuable. The right information in the right place just changes your life. On the other hand, information wants to be free because the cost of getting it out is getting lower and lower all the time. So you have these two fighting against each other."

- Stewart Brand, First Hackers' Conference, 1984

Information Security, much like Information Quality, is an important component of Information Strategy. Awareness of the need for Information Security must be understood throughout the organization, and be guided by principles with proper governance. Although many security breaches are caused by malicious hackers who exploit inadequate controls, they are just as often caused by carelessness, for example, when a laptop containing confidential information is lost or stolen.

Planning for the protection of the information, setting policies defining the authorization to access or use the data, and enabling the right controls are the main objectives of Information Security.


Envizion can work with your organization in the area of Information Security, to help to:

  • Understand and assess your specific Information Security requirements, as well as the regulatory requirements for confidentiality and privacy
  • Classify information according to criteria such as Confidentiality, Integrity and Availability
  • Define Information Security Policies, Standards, Controls, and Procedures
  • Architect and Enable the framework to manage users, group, passwords, data access views and permissions
  • Perform an Audit of Information Security


Envizion doesn’t know if “information wants to be free”. But we do know this: your information is valuable, and its protection is a very important component of your overall information strategy.
