Humans have been storing information on different objects for millennia, but the digital age has brought about greater comfort in the storage and retrieval of data. This ease of data handling made it easier to disseminate information. The growth of the Internet and social media has tempted people to share information on a larger scale, resulting in uncontrolled sharing of information. This should be a concern for individuals and corporations who are insufficiently concerned about security of their data.

This course explores the difference between data and information, how data is stored and retrieved in different media, the good and bad sides of uncontrolled dissemination of information, and the safeguards to keep personal and corporate data secure.

Learning Objectives

  • Explore the basic concepts of data and information
  • Explore how data is stored, transmitted and shared
  • Recognize how the information age, the Internet and social media influence data and information security
  • Identify some safeguards to keep your data secure
