I am an apprentice student and need this for one of my assignments. I have to explain how Data classification and labeling is related to gathering and recording information on security.

Answer: Data classification and labelling are ISO 27001 controls applied to protect information (controls A.8.2.1 and A.8.2.2 respectively). Information classification is used to segregate information according to their value to the organization and to define which type of controls should be applied to protect its confidentiality, integrity and availability during their life cycle (e.g., information with high classification may be gathered only by a certain people, and must be recorded only with electronic media). Labelling is used to allow people to identify the classification of an information, so they can handle them according to the specified rules.
