Defining CIA Triad

The CIA triad is an information security model consisting of the three main principles, Confidentiality, Integrity, and Availability.

Confidentiality ensures that data is not accessible or disclosed to unauthorized individuals, Integrity ensures that data is accurate and unchanged, and Availability ensures that authorized users have access to the data when needed.
