“Europe is a key target for cybercrime because of its advanced Internet infrastructure, the high number of users, and its Internet-mediated economies and payment systems.”
The EU Internal Security Strategy in Action: Five steps towards a more secure Europe
A number of recent cyber attacks have hit the headlines with immense force; Sony, IMF and Facebook are to name but a few. These cyber attacks have caused data breaches which have resulted in brand damage, customer relationships broken and hefty financial implications.
The European Data Protection Directive protects the flow of personal data within the EU, harmonising the legislation throughout each EU country so that there are less discrepancies. There is an obligation for all companies, businesses and organisations throughout Europe, to process the data fairly and in a secure manner. Are you being compliant with the Directive and keeping your organisation’s information secure?
ISO/IEC 27001 is the most significant international best-practice standard available to any organisation that wants an intelligently organised and structured framework for tackling its own cyber risks. ISO27001, as a specification for an information security management system, is clear and precise; it also lists 133 key security controls that should be at the heart of any organisation’s approach to securing its information assets.
