Information systems may be of a public or private nature, and contain elements protected by various data security, data privacy, or intellectual property laws. Property classification into public and private categories is based on ownership. If the property is owned by the government or a political division thereof, it is typically classed as public property; however if the property is owned by an individual, a group of individuals, a corporation, or some other business association, it is normally classified as private property.
