Why does Information Security matter to you?

Because I conduct research involving human participants, information security matters to me because not only do I have the obligation to keep my data safe for accuracy purposes, I also want to ensure that when study participants entrust their information to me, that I do everything I can to protect their privacy and to uphold the ethical principles of justice, respect for persons, and concern for their welfare. I figure that if I were a study participant, that’s how I’d like to be treated.
