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.
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.

The EU and U.S. have reached an agreement that would protect personal data used for law enforcement purposes, Reuters reports. However, though the text has been finalized, the European Commission has said it will not be signed until the U.S. passes legislation giving EU citizens the right to judicial redress in the U.S. Meanwhile, Europe's Advocate General is expected to issue a long-awaited legal opinion on Facebook's sharing of personal information with the National Security Agency under the agency's PRISM program. The opinion, which is non-binding but influences the 15 judges on the European Court of Justice, will likely affect the EU-U.S. Safe Harbor Agreement. The opinion's expected delivery date is now 23 September.
