Classification and marking scheme for sensitive information
Managing the classification and traceability of information guarantees the confidentiality, integrity and availability of sensitive information.
The objective of a basis information classification is to help you to distinguish information, raise awareness, avoid confusion and misunderstanding. A basis information classification will allow you do adapt security measures based on the type of information.
You should categorize information, for example public information on website, confidential internal usage information and personal related information. If you communicate this categorization with your employees, it will tremendously help you in creating awareness, avoiding confusion and misunderstanding. The classification should be used to link certain security measures to types of information, like locking doors or encrypting a document.
