Overcoming information security challenges

The ISM’s responsibilities now cover all aspects of the organisation and its operations, and relate to the security of information in all forms, locations and transactions across the organisation – and beyond.

With what may seem like the world upon your shoulders, how you approach your role, your responsibilities and the way you communicate with the rest of the organisation can have a huge impact on your delivery.
