Information Assurance Advisory Council publishes directors' guides
Three guides that set out company directors' liabilities for managing information risk are now available from the Information Assurance Advisory Council website.
Published by the Information Security Awareness, they cover directors' responsibilities with respect to information security and the organisation, its people and processes.
