Strategies for Managing Confidential Information

Guidance on how to ensure that confidential information is identified, communicated, and protected in an appropriate way.

Disclosure and/or receipt of confidential information has risk associated with it. The risk in maintaining confidentiality and therefore ensuring that the terms of an NDA are not breached can be mitigated with various approaches or combinations thereof. This quick guide suggests strategies that could be incorporated into a successful information management process. The information in this quick guide is not exhaustive, and the specific policies, procedures, or preferences of an organization and the individuals involved in confidential discussions need to be taken into consideration as part of the process.


Under final review. Feedback has been received and is currently being incorporated into the draft. This project will be completed and published soon.
