IT Governance, the global cybersecurity experts.

ELY, CAMBRIDGESHIRE, UNITED KINGDOM, March 8, 2017 / -- IT Governance’s founder and executive chairman, Alan Calder, will speak at The Future of Cyber Security Europe conference in London on 16 March 2017.

The Future of Cyber Security Europe is a national cyber security conference that brings together over 300 senior decision makers and specialists in cyber security and data protection.

During the one-day event, industry experts will deliver presentations on current and emerging information security threats. The conference covers the strategic and organisational needs of all organisations, and provides delegates with a unique opportunity to learn from industry leaders and practitioners.

Alan Calder said: “The Future of Cyber Security Europe conference is a great opportunity to discuss the GDPR and NIS Directive, which come into effect from May 2018. We’ll emphasise the urgent actions organisations need to take to avoid major fines and achieve GDPR and NIS Directive compliance.

“As information security practitioners, we encourage organisations to implement an ISO 27001-compliant ISMS (information security management system) as a pathway to achieving compliance with the Regulation and the NIS Directive. Organisations certified to ISO 27001 provide the assurance that the three pillars of information security – people, processes and technology – are addressed, and that the organisation has implemented a management system to achieve and maintain a strong information security posture.”

Alan Calder will be speaking on “NIS, GDPR and Cyber Security: Convergence of cyber and compliance risk” from 16:25. The presentation will provide an overview of today's cyber threat environment, the key requirements for GDPR compliance, data breaches and notifications, the technical and organisational measures that organisations need to adopt to comply with the NIS Directive, cyber resilience and the role of international standards, and the Cyber Essentials scheme.

The conference will take place at Smile Suite – Exhibition, Prospero House, 241 Borough High Street
SE1 1GA. Clients and information security professionals attending the conference are encouraged to visit IT Governance at stand no. 2.
