You have been hired at a large company to manage network security issues. Prior to your arrival, there was no one dedicated to security, so you are starting at the beginning. You hold a meeting and are discussing the main functions and features of network security. One of your assistants asks what the function of Confidentiality in network security is. Which of the following best describes Confidentiality?
Confidentiality verifies users to be who they say they are. In data communications, authenticating the sender is necessary to verify that the data came from the right source.
Data communications as well as emails need to be protected for privacy and confidentiality. Network security must provide a secure channel for the transmission of data and email that does not allow eavesdropping by unauthorized users. Data confidentiality ensures the privacy of data on the network system.
The security must limit user privileges to minimize the risk of unauthorized access to sensitive information and areas of the network that only authorized users should only be allowed to access.
Security must be established to prevent parties in a data transaction from denying their participation after the business transaction has occurred. This establishes Confidentiality for the transaction itself for all parties involved in the transaction.
Confidentiality is a security principle that ensures the continuous accuracy of data and information stored within network systems. Data must be kept from unauthorized modification, forgery, or any other form of corruption either from malicious threats or corruption that is accidental in nature.
