The recent Sony hack attack has shown how vulnerable our increasing love affair with the online world had made us. The explosion of information technology means that organisations are now exposed to completely new areas of risk that didn’t exist a generation ago.
As a result, the subject of information security has percolated to the top of the management agenda for a number of reasons:
The loss of some very high profile data
We are all now very aware of the threats arising from mismanaging information security. Protecting information security is about how an organisation maintains:
the confidentiality of its information (C);
the integrity of its information (I); and
the availability of its information (A).
However, whilst there is a high information technology component to these issues, information security management systems also need to attend to the more old fashioned risks associated with issues like human error, staff security and, in some cases, even industrial espionage.

Since the invention of management over a century ago, management has become detached from both the day to day operation of the organisation and from delivering value to the customers who pay for the products and services provided. Conventional wisdom is that managers set targets and then create systems to monitor, measure and control the execution of these targets. These systems include budgets, performance management, incentives and appraisals which are used to exercise control and ensure that targets are met. Simple, obvious and wrong!
We need a change in management thinking.
The aim of this blog is to therefore challenge the way in which we currently think about management, hopefully slaying some of the myths that surround it.
