Happy Birthday GDPR - GDPR Launch Event May 25th, 2018

May 25th, a historical day we've celebrated considering GDPR as a piece of cake. LSEC kicked off the official starting date of the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) offering its constuency experiences, technology and birthday cake. ForgeRock presented some considerations on using the core identity as the main architecture also for data protection. During the cases by FireEye, Excellium Services and BNP Paribas Fortis various views and perspectives were presented on how the transition has taken place, what the current actions and activities were and what the next steps are beyond the transition.

GDPR is a process that started years ago by many, and where adoption will continue over the years to come. Companies and organizations facing multiple challenges and developments. IBM and Symantec presented their ideas on identity, monitoring and data leakage prevention. Bitsensor presented a perspective on managing GDPR with DevOpps and agile in mind. CSI Tools presented a user management perspective from their experience in governance control for ERP-environments. Debates were held around ethics with Cathrin Sondergraard, future challenges, the state and development of the regulator. Ulrich Seldeslachts pointed to the challenging messages presented by the different DPA and the speed of ttransforming into national laws.

Regulations Update 2018 - Best practices to NIS and GDPR from GDPR, PSD2 and others

April 26th, LSEC - and the Belgian Cyber Security Coalition (CSC) organised the an Experience Sharing day at the VBO / FEB in Brussels. Main topic was NIS and its developments. Especially for Belgian companies, the development of the NIS Directive which was published in June 2016, being transposed into Belgian law required an update. Thanks to the CCB (Center for Cybersecurity in Belgium), an update was presented on its current "under development" status, as this is the authority of the Belgian regulator. Many ingredients are taken from the Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP)-legislation. The Operators of Essential Services (OES) have not yet been defined, but the list will be in line with the other Member States. Some indications were in any case presented during the day, some experiences from previous legislations shared amongst the attendees. FireEye opened the day with an overview of the relevance of NIS and Critical Infrastructure Protection from an adversary perspective, still (and increasingly) today. Forgerock presented some of its experiences and best practices from a GDPR perspective. Other talks were focused on the developments of GDPR (Jan Leonard of Orange Belgium and Willem De Beuckelaere of the developing Belgian DPA). Some a somewhat more practical challenging and concerns perspective, the other a somewhat more at ease point of view.

Cloud Security 2018 - Cloud continuously getting more secure, but ready for GDPR-compliance

March 20th, LSEC - CSA Belux in collaboration with the Belgian Cyber Security Coalition and KPMG organised the Belux CSA (Cloud Security Alliance) Chapter Meeting at KPMG in Antwerp. Cloud Security has matured over the last decade, and recent trends indicate that over the next five years public clouds will be growing 20% annually. Organisations large and small, private and public are migrating from in house - on premise - hybrid, to public clouds. Most of the spent is on SaaS, and moving into public and that is quite a surprise to many Security practitioners. Experiences and Best practices were shared from KBC Belgium on how to manage cloud services from a service level and ICT-provisioning perspective, from Google Cloud on the application of security, by Laurie-Ann Bourdain on the practice of GDPR in Cloud Operations and by Hans Graux en Ulrich Seldeslachts on the developing Cloud Certification schemes also for GDPR Compliance. KPMG updated the attendees with a view on the developments of Belgian companies on GDPR. Sebastien Deleersnyder from Toreon opened the day by indicating some of the current threat models in the cloud development landscape. Many thanks to KPMG for hosting this activity.
