Information security is important because it protects sensitive information from unauthorized activities like inspection, modification, recording, and disruption. It also helps to maintain the integrity and confidentiality of information, and block the access of hackers. The goal of information security is to ensure the safety and privacy of critical data, such as customer account details, financial data, or intellectual property. In this training, employees are instructed on their responsibilities to protect LCC information.
