EU Defending Against Cybercrime!

The recently launched European Cybercrime Centre is behind this movement to ensure that all European countries have the tools to fight online organized crime. A recent study by PwC indicated that ¾ of small business in the UK, and 93% of large ones had suffered some sort of cybersecurity breach. Behind these regulations is not only scary statistics, but also the need for public reporting when security breaches do occur within organisations. By sharing breaches with the public immediately, users can reset passwords to protect their information, and companies can work on preventing future damage.

Highlights of the Proposed New Regulations:

  • CERT
Every EU country would need a Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT).
  • National Cybercrime Units
Each EU country would need to identify an authority for organisations to report security breaches to.
  • Data Encryption
All companies would be required to encrypt all data. As of right now, there doesn’t seem to be a date set for the announcement of what the final regulations will be.
