Cyber Security is a Shared Responsibility

European Cyber Security Month (ECSM) is an EU advocacy campaign that promotes cyber security among citizens and advocates for change in the perception of cyber-threats by promoting data and information security, education, sharing of good practices and competitions. The European Union Agency for Network and Information Security (ENISA), the European Commission DG CONNECT and Partners are deploying the European Cyber Security Month (ECSM) every October.

 The objectives of the European Cyber Security Month are:

• generate general awareness about cyber security, which is one of the priorities identified in the EU Cyber Security Strategy;

• generate specific awareness on Network and Information Security (NIS), which is addressed in the proposed NIS Directive;

• promote safer use of the internet for all users;

• build a strong track record to raise awareness through the ECSM;

• involve relevant stakeholders;

• increase national media interest through the European and global dimension of the project;

• enhance attention and interest with regard to information security through political and media coordination.

NRB Security Day 2016
Date: 13 Oct 2016

Join the NRB security day and find out how to combine robust data protection and business agility.

With cyber security breaches frequently making front page news and new regulations such as the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) looming, effective information security management has become one of the most important challenges companies are facing today.

In today’s hyper connected world, data, information and insights have become key assets. Any security breach, loss or corruption of data can seriously damage or even be fatal for many of them. But how can you set up solid information security management systems without turning your organization into a hermetically sealed fortress that has lost the flexibility, speed and interaction that are so vital to survive in current fast moving competitive environments?

NRB proposes to look into this dilemma together with you. We invite you participate to the NRB Security Dayduring which we brainstorm together with internationally renowned experts in the security field. We will look into best practices for proactively preparing your company to the GDPR. And we will take away the lessons learned from concrete projects realised by NRB customers on their implementation of an Information Security Management System. And last but not least we will have your personal security reflexes challenged by a special guest. Special dress code: armour and vigilance!
