The Information Assurance Advisory Council (IAAC) mission is to advance Information Assurance (IA) to ensure that the UK’s Information Society has a robust, resilient and secure foundation. Further, IAAC intends that users of digital products and services should be confident these are safe and secure for them, their families and their businesses.

IAAC is a unique partnership that brings together corporate leaders, public policy makers, law enforcement and the research community to address the challenges of managing risks to information. Managing these risks involves both technology and human activities.

IAAC is engaged in the development of policy recommendations to government and corporate leaders at the highest levels. Our recommendations are influential because IAAC's Sponsors and Members comprise leading commercial end-users, government policy makers and distinguished academics.

IAAC's aim is to work for the creation and maintenance of a safe and secure Information Society. This is achieved by our being a not for profit body with high level support from government, the private sector and academia.

We have established a reputation for being a neutral honest broker of ideas focussed on emerging information assurance issues that are not yet being considered by other parties.
