Abstract / Description

This issue of Business Information Review takes a focused look at Information Security, and the role of information professionals in securing information systems and processes. Information security is not simply a matter of IT security; it also encompasses legal compliance, governance, and workflow issues. Nevertheless a series of high profile cyber-attacks in recent years have bought the question of information security to greater public attention, and thrown light on our growing dependency on digital technologies. Privacy, data protection, and the misuse of data are now driving the political agenda around information security in some sectors. How did this come to be and why has information security risen up the political and commercial agenda?
