Information Classification Training Video for Information Owners

Information classification is the cornerstone of any information security program. In order to appropriately protect information, we must know what data we have and understand its value.

The information classification training video introduces supervisors, administrators, directors, coordinators, managers, and other information owners to the concepts of information classification. This video outlines their roles and responsibilities in protecting organizational information assets. It also walks them through the tools developed by the EISO within the NYS Office of Information Technology Services (ITS) to identify, classify, and apply appropriate security controls to the information assets within their organizations. This video is based on the New York State Information Classification Standard and Information Security Controls Standard.

While this training was prepared for New York State agencies, in general, most organizations will find the material useful.
