BeCyberSure Joins EEMA to Deliver Cyber Security Education
Throughout the Public and Private Sector Supply Chain
Global Specialist in Information Security Joins European Think Tank

BRUSSELS, 19th JULY 2016 –  EEMA,  the leading independent not for profit, European think tank focussing on identification, authentication, privacy, risk management, cyber security, the Internet of Things and mobile applications, today 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. It ensures that its clients are well positioned to identify, block, eject and mitigate the effects of a breach and get back to doing business as quickly as possible.

Marketing Director at BeCyberSure, Carolyn Harrison, comments: “We are working hard to get the message out that information security is about getting 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 CyberSecurity for SMEs. It was the opportunity to be involved in initiatives such as TDW, ISSE and EEMA’s high-level fireside briefings that attracted BeCyberSure to become fully fledged EEMA members.

“80% of hacks in larger companies start in the supply-chain, as they provide an easier route as defences are typically weaker,” adds Harrison. “By getting involved with an independent think tank such as EEMA we can drive home the message that strong security is the responsibility of everybody.”

Chair of EEMA, Jon Shamah, states: “We are delighted to welcome BeCyberSure as members of EEMA. Its knowledge and expertise in aiding SMEs throughout Europe with regard to their information security strategies is an important addition to our network.”

Another initiative announced by EEMA last month was the European Trust Foundation. The foundation is an independent collaboration between ten industry associations that will work with Governments, corporates, trade-associations, SME bodies and others both within and outside the EU to bring about stronger digital trust throughout Europe.
