BeCyberSure joins EEMA to deliver cyber security education across public and private sector supply chain

EEMA – the independent, not for profit European Think Tank focusing on identification, authentication, privacy, risk management, cyber security, the Internet of Things and mobile applications – has just welcomed BeCyberSure as its newest member organisation.

BeCyberSure covers the full spectrum of the information security threat, including physical, cyber, governance, education, training and business continuity issues such as crisis management and disaster recovery. The company actively ensures that its clients are well positioned to identify, block, eject and mitigate the effects of a breach such that they can be back doing business as quickly as possible.

Carolyn Harrison, marketing director at BeCyberSure, commented: “We’re working hard to impart the message that successful information security is about having the right combination of people, process and technology in that order. Achieve this and the increasing cyber security risk can be handled in a sensible and proportionate way. BeCyberSure operates across Europe, and the expansive EEMA network creates opportunities for us to convey this important message to the right people throughout the region.”

In June, BeCyberSure was invited to share its expertise at Trust in the Digital World (TDW), a two-day conference in The Hague hosted by EEMA, TDL and IDnext. The company participated in a seminar focusing on ‘Cyber Security for SMEs’. It was an ideal opportunity to be involved in initiatives such as TDW, ISSE and EEMA’s high-level ‘fireside’ briefings that attracted BeCyberSure to become a fully-fledged EEMA member organisation.

“80% of hacks in larger companies begin in the supply chain since they provide an easier route as defences are typically weaker,” added Harrison. “By becoming involved with an independent Think Tank such as EEMA, we can drive home the message that strong security is the responsibility of everyone.”

Jon Shamah, chairman of EEMA, enthused: “We’re delighted to welcome BeCyberSure as members of EEMA. The company’s knowledge and expertise in assisting business throughout Europe with regards to their information security strategies makes it an important addition to our expanding network.”

Another initiative announced by EEMA last month was the European Trust Foundation. This is an independent collaboration between ten industry associations that will work with Governments, corporates, Trade Associations and others both within and outside the European Union to bring about stronger ‘digital trust’ throughout Europe.
