Call for advisory group: Personal data security in small and medium organizations

ENISA launches an advisory group to contribute in developing “a framework on appropriate security measures for the processing of personal data in small and medium organizations”.

Published on February 29, 2016

Small and medium organizations (SMOs) in Europe are becoming increasingly concerned about the risks introduced by processing automatically clients’ and/or users’ information and how they can protect it adequately. However, deciding the appropriate security measures to implement, adapted to the organization’s existing risk environment, is not trivial for them.

ENISA, based on the existing need for guidance in the area, seeks to engage a group of advisors which will help to improve the quality of the recommendations by evaluating the guidelines. The Agency is looking, preferably for information security officers and/or data protection officers in small and medium organizations. The project output will consist of a series of manuals, targeted to support SMOs in the selection of appropriate controls to protect personal data based on the assessed level of risk.

This call is open until March 31st 2016
