The Directors' Guides to Managing Information Risk

 IAAC– Directors Guides

The UK is an information society not just an information economy. Across all walks of life, new information-based ways of working are emerging. Armed with good information and the expertise to use it to the full, organisations can grow and become increasingly successful.


There are serious risks, however, because shareholders, customers and citizens have high expectations for reliable information in spite of the wide range of threats to all corporate and personal data. Ensuring that controls are in place to protect information is a central concern for all organisations.


The purpose of these guides is to help directors ensure their organisation manages its information risks well. These guides will help directors understand the challenges presented by information risk, position their organisation to address those challenges, and make sure their organisations' information risk management arrangements are holistic and strong.


The Guides can be downloaded below in Adobe Acrobat Portable Document Format (PDF) file format.

These Guides were primarily designed as a practical A5 sized folder with inserts which can be obtained free by request from
