Confidentiality means information is not made available to:

  • Unauthorized individuals
  • Unauthorized entities
  • Unauthorized processes

Confidentiality is controlled by access measures provided by an information system.

The concept is that information is not made available or disclosed to unauthorised individuals, entities, or processes.

Ideally, if you do not have access to information, you should not be able to find or see it or its metadata.
