1 Executive Summary
The Information Protection Life Cycle (IPLC) and Framework describes the phases, methods, and controls associated with the protection of information. The IPLC documents three stages in the life of information and multiple categories of controls which can be applied to secure information. The “main sequence” of information is Active Use Life, and Control Access is the first set of controls we consider. Controlling access to information objects is a key concern and control category in the Information Protection Framework.
