As Chairman of the Information Assurance AdvisoryCouncil (IAAC), I am delighted to be associated with thisupdated Guide to Digital Investigations and Evidence forDirectors and Corporate Advisors, written by ProfessorPeter Sommer. The purpose of this guide is to makedirectors and, managers and their professional advisorsaware of the issues involved in collecting, analysing andpresenting digital evidence.The nature of information usage and handling is changing,but our approach to managing it is not. GovernmentDepartments are still assimilating the full implications of the wide range of major issues raised in the reports that followed the recent, serious,data losses. These contained many common themes that are equally applicable to theprivate sector. Each loss has undermined the confidence of individuals in the abilityand commitment of Government Departments, agencies and their private sectorservice providers, to protect their personal data.The most widely publicised, recent, data losses have involved governmentdepartments and their private sector partners. Less well publicised, but significant,data losses continue to occur in the private sector. These failures threaten reputation,trust, business and operational effectiveness, and personal and corporate security.They constitute significant business risks and are, therefore, of direct interest toexecutive board members and the respective audit committees. Data losses may arisefrom incompetence or from criminal activity. In either case, failures in process,culture, behaviour, management oversight and overall governance are likely to becontributory factors. This may well be because executives at board level have notfully understood and managed two of their principal business assets – their people andtheir data – and the risks related to them.This useful guide highlights the potential risks for enterprises that do not have adetailed planned response to typical risk scenarios. It points out that the ‘LowFrequency/High Impact’ events are disruptive and emphasises that ‘HighFrequency/Low Impact’ events are also disruptive and must be addressed bycontingency plans and preventative measures.In commending Professor Peter Sommer’s clear and informative guide to its readers, Iseek to highlight the crucial importance of timely and sound decision making bysenior management, taking due notice of the advice given by their technical experts.Sir Edmund BurtonChairman, Information Assurance Advisory Council
