In Memoriam : Howard Schmidt

Written by Ulrich Seldeslachts

schmidt howard

At the age of 67, our friend and cyber security inspiration Howard Schmidt peacefully passed away, last March 2nd in his home in Wisconsin after a long battle of cancer.
A computer crime expert, who advised two presidents and drafted cybersecurity safeguards for the US and the rest of the world, was one of the first recognizing the need to work together in the continuous battle for a safe and secure cyber space. He founded the inpiration for many to start sharing information between law enforcement, government and business. A practice being served throughout the globe.
Rest in Peace Howard, you will continue to be an inspiration for all of us working to ensure a better world, also in cyber. You were a wonderful, amicable person, always available for a talk and support. Condolences to the family from the whole of the ICT Security community in Belgium and beyond.

Data Protection Regulation Implementation Challenges - GDPR Experiences and Experts

Written by Ulrich Seldeslachts

dp veci


May 5th, the European Parliament finally publsihed the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation), which will take effect on May 25th, 2018. With more than 70% of European companies not even aware of this regulation, let alone be ready to comply to the regulation, LSEC and its Members and Partners started with a series of events and activities that will support the strategic definition, implementation of activities and exchanging expert advice that lead to compliance. During these events all different aspects will be investigated in depth. The major differentiator is that we will not only debate the legal implications, but will deep dive into its implementation best practices, building on top of existing processes and procedures (such as ISO 27k, PCI/DSS, Basel II, ....), using existing technologies (implementing the right rules on NGFW, NGIDS, SIEM, Data Leakage in End Protection, Encryption technologies, ....). 
These seminars will be supported with various white papers, expert advisory and sessions minutes. 

LSEC GDPR & DATA PROTECTION INFORMATION SECTION

More information on the Data Protection Regulaton with links and documentation can be found on the Data Protection Section of the LSEC website. Registration to the events can be found there as well. 

Join us today in getting ready for first major European Security regulation for enterprises.

The Infradata Security Summit 2016 was a fun gathering of security experts and Infradata partners and customers. LSEC's Ulrich Seldeslachts provided attendees a perspective on the Data Protection regulation, some of the challenges for enterprise market. 

Attendees, about 2/3 indicated their concerns in privacy, but zero attendees had either investigated the GDPR, or its impact for their organization. Ulrich Seldeslachts from LSEC tried to give an insight in the regulatory changes, following the current challenges and putting them into a business perspective indicating to security professionals what impact they might cause. 

Other interesting contributions from NSS-labs, participating and joing directly from the US, providing insights on their market analysis methodologies for enterprise security products such as next generation firewalls and next generation ids. 

More information on the event can be found on the Infradata website. Presentations can be found there as well.
