We suddenly realise how important that information is to our business. And if we're honest with ourselves… We’d probably admit…. That we don’t spend enough time thinking about how we manage information. If we did… We might do a better job of keep companies our secure and also improve the performance of our business… Now, to help you get a grip on this important topic...
