Even before the pandemic, a global push was on to strengthen the protection of personal and health information and the results of these various influences has been an enhancement of privacy legislations globally. Compliance with global security laws is now also a larger concern for organizations everywhere.

Webinar: ‘cybersecurity, een praktische introductie’ (21/2)

Cybersecurity wordt beschouwd als één van de grootste bekommernissen in het huidige ondernemerschap. De veiligheid van (klanten)gegevens is een topprioriteit en een beleid hieromtrent uitwerken is noodzakelijk. Als adviseur zal je wel vaker de vraag krijgen van jouw klanten over hoe ze hiermee aan de slag moeten gaan.

Onze spreker, Peter Geelen van Cyberminute, wil een vernieuwende aanpak tonen die de zelfredzaamheid en veerkracht bij KMO’s inzake cybersecurity helpt vergroten.
Peter Geelen is sinds meer dan 20 jaar actief in de IT-sector en heeft een doorgedreven ervaring in Enterprise Security & Architecture, Identity & Access Management, Privacy & Data Protection, Cyber- en Cloud Security. Hij zal je tijdens dit webinar een introductie geven over de cybersecurity van vandaag, wat stilaan een vaste nieuwsrubriek is geworden, en jou enkele handvaten aanreiken zodat je als adviseur richting kunt geven aan de vraagstukken van jouw klanten.

Privatum - Privacy after work

Privacy after work
met Jan Leonard (DPO @ Orange)
en Peter Geelen (Senior Information Security management Advisor @ Centre for Cybersecurity)
6 februari 2020 – Lummen
Na onze eerste “privacy after work” van oktober 2019 zijn we toe aan een vervolg.

Het concept en de aanpak blijft identiek enkel de locatie is anders.

Voor deze tweede sessie gaan we een stap verder richting datalekken:

Hoe moet je je organiseren?
Wat zijn de meest belangrijke stappen?
Hoe kan je de impact van een datalek objectief bepalen?
Hoe beheers je de communicatie?
Is het mogelijk om je voor te bereiden?
Wat is de rol van de DPO, de CISO, ….?
Vragen waarbij we vroeg of laat allemaal wel eens mee geconfronteerd gaan worden.

Daarnaast werpen we een blik op een “nieuwe” ISO normering nl ISO27701.

Wat houdt deze juist in?
Hoe kunnen we deze toepassen binnen de context van informatiebeveiliging?
Vragen waar onze sprekers – Jan Leonard (Orange) en Peter Geelen (CCB) – die avond een antwoord op kunnen geven.

Privatum en DQS – experts in privacy en dataprotectie – nodigen u uit voor de tweede infosessie met netwerkmoment in de kantoren van Privatum te Lummen op 6 februari 2020.

ISO/IEC 27701 vs GDPR: What you need to know

As a follow-up on the previous session (4th of December), we run through the GDPR part of the ISO/IEC 27701 standard which has been published in August 2019.
We'll take it from another angle and use the ISO/IEC 27701 as a guide to complete the checklist for the GDPR implementation.

Also, with the help of the (new) PECB ISO/IEC 27701 lead auditor course, we'll have an auditor's look at the ISO certification and compliance. It's important to see how it works, to make sure your GDPR implementation can withstand the increasing demand for maturity from customers, subjects and data protection authorities that start to exercise their rights.

The ISO27701 contains important requirements and implementation guidance for implementing a PIMS (Privacy Information Management System), which will set the baseline for the future of privacy and data protection.

The webinar covers:

The GDRP view of the ISO/IEC 27701
Mapping the GDPR to-do and the ISO/IEC 27701 to-do list.
The ISO/IEC 27701 auditor mindset
Compliance AND/OR/XOR solid data protection?
Status of GDPR certification

Quick Guide to ISO/IEC 27701-The Newest Privacy Information Standard

In this session, we have looked into the ISO/IEC 27701 standard that has been published in August 2019. This standard glues together the ISO/IEC 27001, ISO/IEC 27002, ISO 29100 and their sub-standards with the GDPR.

For certification and compliance, it's important to understand these standards and regulations, as the GDPR and other legislation have heated the discussion about certification. The ISO/IEC 27701 contains important requirements and implementation guidance for implementing a PIMS (Privacy Information Management System), which will set the baseline for the future of privacy and data protection.

The webinar covers:
Walkthrough of the ISO/IEC 27701
Links with ISO/IEC 2700x series standards, ISO 29100 series...
ISO/IEC 2700x and GDPR mapping

(organizer) (ISC)² Belux chapter event: Security in an Agile environment

Agile development methodologies were never designed with security in mind - but as many have experienced, bolting it on as an after-thought hits some serous limitations.

The lack of holistic scope and the difficulty in translating user stories into actionable security requirements expose the difficulties with treating security as another type of user story.

These issues are only amplified as organisations move to applying Agile Frameworks at Enterprise scale.

In this presentation,

- we summarise the issues typically encountered with the new unholy trinity of Agile Value Delivery, Architecture & Security,

- discussing the place of security in Scaled Agile Frameworks and how this might work in practice.
