At present the risks related to information security are on the rise, so companies have decided to watch their backs and protect their most precious treasure: their information. This is where the roll of a Security Officer appears, the CISO (Chief Information Security Officer).
They say that there is no password in the world that is indecipherable, although it is true that we can create an almost perfect password. Moreover, we have to keep in mind basic rules that a perfect password should follow. The first one, and also the most important, it must be very easy to remember; and the second one, we take a careful look at length. They recommend a minimum of twelve characters. Therefore, the use of words has several factors of risk: short extension and facility to be found in a dictionary.
Today we are talking about Cloudbreakfast. These are thematic breakfasts in which a specialized person talks about specific topic in order to inform and help the audience to resolve their doubts related with this topic.
The running of our thematic breakfasts are always the same:
- Event visitors’ arrival and reception with coffee, water and juices
- Presentation of the topic of the day
- Specialized person presentation
- Networking with pastries, coffee and juice
These Cloudbreakfast have the aim to make different people with a common concern can share their worries, their experiences and solutions. This September we have the pleasure to confirm one in Barcelona where you will listen about Brexit and their influence in companies’ data protection.
Nowadays everybody are live connected, our smartphone have many information about us and just in case we can also find this information in our tablet. Furthermore, for some time, our electronic items offer new possibilities thanks to the fact that they have availability to connect on the internet. We depend on technology each time more but we don’t notice about one important thing: the cybersecurity.
We are sure about many of you are not aware about cybersecurity. Cyberattacks are not only for computers, we can suffer one when you least expect it. For example, have you ever have stayed in a hotel and you have connected your mobile to its Wi-Fi? If your answer is affirmative, you has put at risk your smartphone and you have been a focus to a possible cyberattack.
Cybersecurity is a way which must be important for us, including companies. Last year in Spain, there was an increase of 200% in cybersecurity incidents (source: El País). It means that is important that we become more aware and take action.
On Thursday 21th July took place at the Mediapro’s Museum a new CloudBreakfast session, thematic breakfasts in which a specialist speaks about trending topics connected to our sector. In this case, we talked about Brexit and how could it affect to data protection, especially for companies who have their clouds located in the United Kingdom.
Xavier Ribas, from Ribas y Asociados, was in charge of the session. He is a lawyer specialized in digital right since 1987, in data protection compliance since 1992 and in penal compliance since 2010.
According to Ribas the Brexit has been a black swan for some companies, this means that nobody expected it to happen and many companies had not created a plan B in order to be ready for it.
