New EU regulation for data protection

The European Commission has proposed a comprehensive reform of the EU’s 1995 data protection rules to strengthen online privacy rights and boost Europe’s digital economy. Technological progress and globalisation have profoundly changed the way our data is collected, accessed and used. In addition, the 27 EU Member States have implemented the 1995 rules differently, resulting in divergences in enforcement. A single law will do away with the current fragmentation and costly administrative burdens, leading to savings for businesses of around €2.3 billion a year. The initiative will help reinforce consumer confidence in online services, providing a much needed boost to growth, jobs and innovation in Europe.  Read more >

The regulation is still in progress and is scheduled medio 2016. For citizens and businesses it is relevant to become aware of the way personal data in your personal and organisational domain are obtained and shared. In fact is all about cyber security and has for many public organisations an increasing relevance. We think it will become an essential part of public governance.

Dossier sur la Sécurité Informatique

Le magazine l’Essentiel du CIG Grande Couronne consacre un dossier à la Sécurité Informatique des Collectivités. Le fichier PDF est disponible ici (en téléchargement libre).

Information Security and Privacy Risk Survey

We’d like to invite you to PARTICIPATE  in a RESEARCH STUDY we are conducting in association with Zurich, which has sponsored Harvard Business Review (HBR) to help the risk management community to:

  • Gain a greater understanding of how the global risk management community views information security and privacy risk, from its significance within organizations to effective mitigation processes, the financial implications, and emerging international regulations.
  • Learn what processes and actions that other organizations are implementing to predict and prevent information security breaches from occurring.
  • Benchmark your knowledge and views on information security and privacy against those of your peers.

As a Risk Manager, your views on information security and privacy risks are greatly appreciated. This is the first initiative in our quarterly series on Leadership in Risk Management, and the main topics identified from the survey findings will be the focus of our security and privacy webinar later this year.

A subsequent report will then outline the key insights; and we hope that this partnership between Zurich, HBR, FERMA and PRIMO Europe will truly help you control the potential risks in this area of key concern.

This survey should take no longer than 15 minutes to complete, and the final date for responses is Friday, 10 August 2012. As a thank you, upon completion of the survey, you will be able to download a complimentary copy of Harvard Business Review article, “What Every CEO Needs to Know about The Cloud“.
