Information Security is relentlessly progressing and staging steadfast growth in many fields. This survey bolsters the belief that security will remain zestful and tumultuous. The Daily News asserts that cyber-attacks are not just a seasonal threat or dependent on specific industry environmental traits, but are constant and should remain forefront in every enterprise executive board work. Information Security is becoming popular by providing services like Cloud Security, Systems Security, Network Security, IOT Security, Automobile Security, Web-Application Security, Wireless Security, GSM Security etc. This survey paper focuses on the briefing of Information Security, on the fields in which Information Security is exponentially emerging and on new research trends in this area.
