2 years of GDPR: where does your IT security stand?

06.05.2020

The increasing number of security parameters is making the security of your IT systems ever more challenging. Cybercriminals take advantage of the weaknesses in your IT security to gain access to your business applications – servers, devices and so on. That makes teleworking staff a popular target, especially during the corona crisis. Be prepared so you can adequately arm yourself against cybercrime.

In the first 18 months since the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into force on 25 May 2018, the Data Protection Authority received reports of 1,115 data breaches. The agency has also issued the first fines to companies that failed to observe the legislation, and various federations have published sector-specific recommendations. IT security therefore requires specialised knowledge in several areas, including the exact regulations that need to be met. You may be familiar with GDPR, but what do you know about the Directive on Security of Network and Information Systems, or NIS Directive?
 

Data protection is still very much on companies’ minds, and rightly so: the Global Economic Crime and Fraud Survey by consultancy PwC shows that cybercrime is now the second most common economic crime. According to the survey, cybercrime is also one of the three most disruptive and far-reaching fraud events. Earlier this year, several large corporations in Belgium fell victim to ransomware, leaving them temporarily unable to operate.
