Welcome to LSEC, an internationally renowned Information security cluster, a not for profit organization that has the objective to promote Information Security and the expertise in BeNeLux and Europe. Founded by the University of Leuven (K.U. Leuven), supported by European Commission FP7 and leading a unique PAN European Private partnership that interacts with Public Institutions, LSEC connects security industry experts, research institutes and universities, government agencies, end users, funding bodies and technical experts who are driving national and European research agendas. LSEC activities aim to raise cyber security awareness, support innovation and competitiveness of the European IT- Security market and promote the visibility of its members.
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.
