Confidentiality refers to limits on who can get what kind of information. Confidentiality is an ethical or professional duty not to disclose information to a third party.

This legal obligation exists even though any contracts or other documents related to confidentiality may not have signed.

Is Confidentiality a toolbox?"In theory there is no difference between theory and practice. In practice there is". Lawrence Peter "Yogi" Berra-- Yogi Berra
Confidentiality applied as a stand-
alone process can help identify whether complete pathways exist that link to a potential "window of opportunity". The need for confidentiality exists when information is designated as “confidential” (e.g. stamped or announced). It also applies where the need for it is obvious or evident (nature of the material or context of the situation), or required by applicable law, even though the information is not specifically designated as confidential. Confidentiality as an applied countermeasure to safeguard sensitive information (single most valuable asset) is a reflection of a wide variety of protection techniques due to the number of espionage techniques that exist.

Fundamentally, security is about people. It’s not really computers that are breaking into different systems, its people. It’s your adversaries. It’s often actually your insiders, people that work for you. So understanding the motivation of those people and, I believe, training your people -people you trust, people that works for you, yourself, your employees, your contractors- to be proactive about security is one of the very best paths you can take to maintaining a good security stance.
And because CONFIDENTIALITYis an old but often forgotten preventative strategy lets remember what Nicholas Machiavelli said about initiating changes;"… there is nothing more difficult to arrange, more doubtful of success, more dangerous to carry through than initiating changes...The innovator makes enemies of all those who prosper under the old order, and only lukewarm support is forthcoming from those who would prosper under the new. Men are generally incredulous, never really trusting new things unless they have tested them by experience.“
