Digital information is the heart of today’s organisations. It’s growing exponentially, and its eﬀective use and management is directly linked to the continued success of the modern enterprise.

There are now many signiﬁcant, high-proﬁle examples of information risks being realised, and their impacts continue to grow. Organisations simply must improve their management of information risk.
