Do I need to protect the javax.crypto.spec (IV) when I store encrypted content?

I currently store the IV together with the encrypted data. Not i n the data but alongside and then use it when the data needs to be decrypted. Would it be better to store the IV somewhere else?

So I do not compromise security by having it readily available?
