Abstract: Information flows like fishes flow through the sea; this presents abundance opportunities for people to steal data making information security a necessity. Whether Information and records are paper, photographic, digital or audiovisual, they will deteriorate over time. The lifespan of this information and records will depend on how they are preserved and managed throughout their entire lifecycle; this makes information preservation another necessity. This paper is aimed at analyzing as well as comparing the ways in which information is preserved and secured in the past, what is like today and what is going to be in the near future. The descriptive survey research methodology was adopted in which questionnaire was used to capture data that made it easy to ascertain the levels of information preservation and security in the past, today and also estimated what it will be in the future. Based on the analysis made in this work, it is shown that in the past, information preservation and security was as low as 15.5%. In the present, people are becoming more conscious of information security and preservation, skyrocketing the value to 33.1%. This work also predicted that information security and preservation will be better in the near future with a takeoff value of 51.4%. This work therefore concludes that information preservation and security is progressively increasing as information users are becoming very conscious.
