Abstract [en]

Information classification is the fundamental step when it comes to protecting assets within an organization. It is a term used to define the value of each information asset and dictates the protection and handling requirements of the asset as well. This thesis work analyzes the information classification scheme of one of the largest telecom organizations in the world - Ericsson. The current information classification scheme at Ericssno has certain complications when it comes to assigning appropriate level of confidentiality, external sharing of information, labelling of information assets, just to name a few. This project points out the drawbacks or flaws in the existing classification scheme and looks also at the current trends of information classification in the hi-tech industry. However, the ultimate goal was to propose an information classification model including the number of levels and labeling convention that would best-fit the Ericsson's way of working and cater the problems that are present in the current scheme. The thesis also presents a tool that could be used by organizations, like Ericsson, to simplify the enforement of an information classification process.
