Security Reference: CIA Triad

In security parlance, the following 3 points make up the "CIA Triad":

  • Confidentiality
  • Integrity
  • Availability

The Wikipedia article on the CIA Triad describes confidentiality in this context as "prevent the disclosure of information to unauthorized individuals or systems"; integrity as "data cannot be modified without authorization"; and availability is described as when the information can be accessed.
