Information Security Page 2 Information security is so much more important than some people may realize. Many businesses have trade secrets, which if stolen can provide competitive disadvantage and either end their business life, or if they’re lucky, just vanish their expansion and growth aspirations simply put. Therefore, they must protect that business confidential information at any price or they’ll disappear in no time (Henrix LLC, 2010). There are different ways in which we can protect any sensitive information, but they will take time and sometimes money.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
