no more course binders

This year's first Strategisk Informationssäkerhet course marked a departure from paper-based documentation. Farewell, course binders! We've used an online teaching platform for years but in the absence of printed material, the platform becomes a critical course component. Next time, we'll add a wiki for ideas and links to further reading/listening.

As always, Conny Larsson (in the photo collage) lectured on Security Law. Other guest lectures covered Influence Operations and Security Policy.

a handy handrail

InfoSec begins with knowing your assets. Some do not have a grip on what info they own, how valuable it is and why. They are not in a position to define security, much less implement it.

Some classify info for reasons of compliance, but all too often this is an isolated project activity and the result is not merged into a meaningful whole.

Information structure tends to be more static than organisation or routines. Your information model can be an effective handrail for all sorts of management purposes.
