Information Assurance (IA)

It is the practice of assuring information and managing risks related to the use, processing, storage, and transmission of information. In the field of communication and information systems, information assurance gives confidence that such systems will protect the information they handle and will function as they need to, when they need to, under the control of legitimate users.


Interoperability is the ability of systems or equipment to work together in a joint operation, to exchange and make use of information.
