ENISA’s international security message
The evolving cyber security landscape will be highlighted by Executive Director, Professor Udo Helmbrecht at an international conference in San Francisco on 25th June.
Published on June 25, 2012
Organised by ISACA (formerly known as the Information Systems and Control Association), the event brings together a diverse group of global professionals from backgrounds including IT security, audit and management.
Professor Helmbrecht said: “Our response to cyber threats need to be coordinated at an international level because cyber attacks are frequently launched from outside the countries that are targeted. The recent ‘Flamer’ spyware virus that targeted PCs in a number of Middle Eastern countries shows the international nature of the threat, and highlights the fact that attackers are developing highly specialised malware. Our success in countering these constantly evolving risks depends on our ability to share knowledge across borders - with governments, the IT industry, the academic world and with IT users. Working with organisations such as ISACA provides ENISA with a further opportunity to share good practice and support improved network and information security for all.”
Professor Helmbrecht will be participating as a panellist with Mr Marc Vael of ISACA and a representative from NIST – The US National Institute of Standards and Technology. The session is will cover changing threats, what is around the corner, corporate espionage, coming information sharing, cyber harassment’s impact on business related issues and moving from the physical to the cyber world.
