Describe your data | Assess your risks | Make informed decisions

The Data Asset Inventory and Unit Information Risk Self-Assessment (DAI-IRSA) at the University of Toronto is a university-wide initiative to enable units to actively manage their information risk and data governance and to broaden the understanding of shared challenges across the University.

Completing the program will provide you with:

  • A better understanding of your data assets and the information risk management activities in your unit, facilitating informed decision-making
  • An Information Risk Management Program (IRMP) for your unit, satisfying the requirements of the Policy on Information Security and Protection of Digital Assets
  • A record of the data assets in your unit; laying the foundation for formal data governance practices and prioritizing data assets to target with your information risk management efforts
