Information risk assessment checklist for social media


This template risk assessment checklist was designed to get people thinking about some of the potential risks to the organisation’s information that might be presented by delivering a project through social media.

That’s not to say those risks are necessarily very serious; but by thinking them through and mitigating the worst eventualities, it’s easier to keep everyone in the organisation happy with the strategic decisions to use social media.

This checklist aims to ensure that when a new project is initiated which involves sharing or distributinginformation online, we have properly assessed and mitigated risk where possible, and that there is senior acknowledgement and support for the level of risk we are accepting.
